This 3 ½ inch tall all bisque doll is jointed at the shoulders. She is incised 0//2/20 on the back of her torso with corresponding 0 markings on the back of each of her arms. The facial features are molded and painted. She has a molded hole at the top of her head with the tiny remnants of a blond mohair wig and silk ribbon. She also has pink molded shoes and shirred white molded socks. I love the little chubby German body. The little doll, circa the late 1800s, has no chips, cracks, or repairs. I like to display these dolls with no clothing but she really could use a little more hair. It would only take a wisp.
