This 15 inch tall doll, circa the early 20th century, has china shoulder head manufactured, in Germany, by Dressel &n Kister. The original body is white kid leather and jointed at the shoulders. The china head has marvelous painting and sculpting of the neck, breasts, and back. My photos do not do this doll justice. She retains the original delicate cotton, lace, and gauze clothing. The gauze shows wear but is original to the doll. The leather body is sturdy and the china shoulder head is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. I love the fabulous sculpting of the facial features. The hair is elaborate and beautifully styled. I could not resist this doll when I saw her at a show in Germany. These type dolls are so rare and just not available in the United States. She is definitely museum quality for the discriminating buyer.
