An irresistible choice for lovers of sweet German dollies, this Louis & Wolf shoulder head girl is adorned in a gorgeous antique costume and silk bonnet! The heads for these dolls were usually manufactured by Armand Marseille, giving her that unmistakable German girl look! Her costume is filled to the brim with presentation value, making her sure to stand out among the others in your cabinet! We are sure she’ll be in good company with your other prized dollies. I personally love bisque girls with that all-antique look -- it just gives them that extra something special, like they stepped out of a time machine!

She has a bisque shoulder head with expert modeling and crisp detailing, 23" tall. Brown glass set eyes are framed by painted upper & lower lashes, and thick feathered brown brows. She has an open mouth with four upper teeth and a dimpled chin. She wears a lovely light blond mohair wig, in a short, curly style. She is on her antique kidskin body with bisque lower arms and gusset joints to the knees and pin-jointed thighs.
She is adorned in her all-antique costume, starting with a lovely pale pink silk bonnet atop her head, which is nice and fluffy. A single flower decorates the front, along with some ribbon tie. The dress she wears is an organdy cotton in cream, with embroidery trimming, and flower decoration to the collar. Underneath, she wears a white net chemise, antique, and a white cotton lace-trimmed half slip. Matching antique white lace-trimmed cotton pantaloons go underneath, and on her feet she wears white cotton socks and white leather shoes.
MARKS: 2015 (Louis & Wolf anchor mark) 5.
CONDITION : Generally Excellent. Bisque is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The painting is excellent and the modeling is crisp and detailed. Minor rub to the left cheek, and what appears to be a tiny hair caught in the bisque, underneath the chin. Bisque hands are good. Antique kidskin body in generally good condition, although there is some patchwork repair and reinforcement to the legs, especially the right. The costume is fabulous, having held up well over the years. This is a girl you cannot say “no” to!
