This 13 inch tall doll has a 3 3/4 inch tall china head manufactured in Germany, circa the 1850s, by Kister. The pink tint china head has a covered wagon hairstyle. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some typical wear to the black paint on the back of the hair. There is also a very minute area of roughness on the tip of the nose. The cloth body with long china arms appears to be original to the doll and is definitely of the same 1850s period. The doll wears antique cotton underclothing and a great early hand sewn cotton print dress. I love this particular mold and particularly appreciate a doll that has such great originality.
