This 8 inch tall doll, circa the early 20th century, was created by the German firm of Max Handwerck. She is in all original condition with a painted bisque socket head and a five piece composition jointed body. The doll has glass eyes, an open mouth with teeth, and her original black human hair wig. I love the original suede costume complemented by turquoise and white beading. The doll is incised on the back of the neck "MH//20/0." She is in good condition except for a hairline crack that appears to have occurred in the firing as the painting of the bisque appears to be over the crack. The crack runs from the back of the head, across the right cheek, over the bridge of the nose and across the left cheek. It sounds terrible but it may actually only be a crease in the painted bisque. I honestly did not notice it when I purchased her as it is not all that obvious. In any case, she is still a great example of a Native American doll with a wonderful costume.
