Look at this precious lady! She’s a lovely turned-head closed mouth German girl, attributed to Alt Beck & Gottschalk, due to her unique expression and features. She has vibrant blue paperweight eyes, and she stands at 18” tall on a kidskin body with creamy bisque lower arms. She’s in great overall condition, and is bound to please!

She has a pale bisque shoulder head, with a turned-head, with a set of originally-set paperweight blue eyes, with painted upper & lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and a closed mouth, with selective blushing over an overall pale complexion. She stands at 18” tall, on her original antique kidskin body, with bisque lower arms, and gusset knees, thighs, and elbows. She wears a high-quality blond mohair wig in a short, curly style.
She comes adorned in an antique pale pink silk peignoir, with a folded-down collar, with long sleeves. Underneath, goes a cream cotton antique dress, with lots of eyelet embroidery, long sleeves, and lace trim to the sleeves. She wears a sleeveless white cotton full slip underneath, along with a matching pair of antique cotton pantaloons as well as a half slip with lace. White socks and white faux leather shoes clad her feet.
CONDITION: Excellent! The doll’s bisque shoulderhead is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with a lovely set of painted and modeled features, with detailed complexion. The originally-set paperweight eyes are a vibrant blue, and have nice pupil alignment. The kidskin body is good overall, with only a little bit of old patched reinforcements to some of the joints here and there, and only the most minor of expected age wear overall. The bisque lower arms are good, with no chips or issues. The costume is good overall, with some soil and age wear, which is to be expected. Overall, this doll is in great condition, with outstanding presentation!
