MARKS: Made in Germany (star) 1912 - 4 [incised, back of head]
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. Nice quality bisque with expert painting of features, very crisp modeling, pleasant color, lovely large eyes and a sweet expression. The head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. There are some minor mold flaws to the side of the head, that look like slight creases in the porcelain, but this is minor. Nice pale complexion, and expert painting of features. The body has much of its original finish, and has good tight stringing, but does have touchup and areas of painted-over wear, where the composition has flaked off. The hands are repainted, and the body has some age wear and some surface crazing to the composition. Costume is good with no issues.
