This 5 ½ inch tall half doll, circa the beginning of the 20th century, was manufactured in Germany most likely by Dressel & Kister. She has beautiful brunette streaked hair decorated with a red ribbon. The facial features are delicately painted with intaglio eyes and a closed mouth. The arms are molded away from the body with well defined fingers and fingernails. Her back even shows detailed modeling. The doll is incised with the number 23146 at the back base. She is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There are two tiny spots of wear on the back of the head. This elegant lady could be displayed just as she is or her new owner could create a fabulous doll by adding a body.
