This 20 inch tall doll, circa the late 19th century, was manufactured by the German firm of Cuno & Otto Dressel. This doll is such a beauty. She was purportedly manufactured to compete and resemble the popular 117n Mein Liebling open mouth doll created by Kammer & Reinhardt. The doll has blue glass sleep eyes with full eyelashes. She also has an open mouth with upper teeth. Miss COD retains her original ball jointed composition body with mostly original finish and some minor repaint. She is missing the ring finger of her right hand. She has a dark blonde human hair wig and cardboard pate that both may be original to her. The doll wears antique cotton underclothing and a dress of soft lavender silk. This doll is so lovely and her riveting eyes just draw you in immediately.
