This 5 inch tall doll has a china head, cloth body jointed at the shoulders and hips, and china lower arms and legs. The blonde shoulder head was manufactured in Germany circa the 1880s-1890s. The china lower arms and legs are appropriate but may be later replacements. The unmarked head is in good condition except for some inherent roughness and chipping on the lower back edge of the shoulder plate. This appears to have happened when the head was initially created and does not represent later damage. The little dollhouse size lady wears a silk dress with lace trim accompanied by eyelet trimmed white cotton underclothing. The costume is created from antique materials and the silk of the dress shows some deterioration. The doll would make a charming addition to any elegant doll house tableau.
