German Turned Shoulder head doll
Lovely, pale German bisque turned shoulder head doll has a solid dome head and closed mouth. She has no mold numbers, but I attributed her to Alt Beck & Gottschlack. She is 19 inches tall. Her beautiful blue spiral glass eyes are set stationary and a sparse blonde mohair wig. She is on her original, straw stuffed, cloth body with kid arms. This early doll has finely brush stroked, painted blonde eyebrows and a delicately tinted pale bisque complexion. Clothing: She is still in her original clothing that consists of a long sleeve red wool challis dress with a wide red ribbon sash tied at the waist. Her chemise and pantaloons are cotton with eyelet trim. She wears brown leather boots with heels that button on her feet (condition is fragile). The red hat is pressed felt with a plaid ribbon band. Condition issues: There is no sew tape on her right front or back sew holds. You can see the straw stuffing underneath from the back. There are no other issue except she has no mold marks, but there is a factory flaw at the base of the back of her head. It has always been there & is common to these early dolls. She has a desirable, deep shoulder plate with two sew hole on the front and 2 on the back. Very nice early doll ready to go into your collection.
