This 20 inch tall doll has a 5 inch tall flat top china shoulder head, circa the 1860s, that was manufactured in Germany by the Kister Porcelain Factory. The antique body is cloth with lower arms of white kid leather. The china head is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The body is in good sturdy condition with my limited examination. The antique dress is in somewhat fragile condition but may be original to the doll. There is much melting to the pink silk on the two piece dress that could be replaced by a talented seamstress. The china head lady also has antique cotton underclothing. I did not attempt to remove the dress as I do not want to damage it further.
