This mold number is called “Sweet Nell” and I can most certainly see why! Such an adorable expression. In beautiful overall condition, this girl presents well and will most certainly appeal to any collector of large German dolls.
Creamy and pale bisque socket head with brown glass sleep eyes, and open mouth; molded and painted features. Real upper lashes with painted lower lashes, and brown feathered flyaway brows. Her synthetic brown hair is in precious long curls with curly bangs bringing a lot of life to her expression.
She wears an antique off white cotton dress, with lace detail and accent, and a pink bow at her neck and a blue ribbon in the hair. Underneath is a white cotton full slip with a picot edge and a pair of scalloped edged pantaloons. Cotton socks, and black leather shoes.
MARKS: ABG 1362 Made in Germany 7
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. There are a few very small pepper spots on her forehead. Modeling is crisp and the painting is sharp and delicate, indicative of particular care by the manufacturers. The body has large areas of repaint. All around, this doll is a great choice for anyone looking to buy a large doll. So sweet!
