Parian and china dolls occupy a rather unique niche in antique doll collections, with their refined elegance and simplicity, often prized for their earlier period in doll history. This particular pair of parian dolls are in a petite dollhouse size, with cute presentations that are bound to please. One is a 8.0” tall parian lady with blond hair and a bright blue costume, with molded and painted hat, while the other is a little cute parian half doll in a silk dress. Overall, this is a cute pair!

The first is a 8.0” tall classic parian lady with a molded and painted yellow hat, with painted and molded features: blue eyes, blond tapered brows, and a closed mouth. She has her original parian limbs, with blue painted molded boots with red details. She wears a blue dress with trim, and antique underthings.
The second is a parian half doll, with painted and molded features, with a shoulder head style, with blue eyes, tapered brows, and blond hair with a blushed complexion. She is a half doll, on a leg-less cloth body with parian lower arms. She wears her original silk dress.
MARKS: -Neither doll has any visible porcelain marks-
CONDITION: The 8.0” parian girl does have a faint spidercrack running under her chin, along the neck. Other than this, she is in great condition, with only the most minor and typical age wear, the same going for her costume. The half doll has only minor and typical wear, although her dress has sustained quite a bit of melting and moderate to extreme age wear. It should be noted that smaller porcelain dolls such as these tend to have molding issues, such as pepper spots, but this is not abnormal, and should be expected.
*Please note that the price shown for this doll was calculated by factoring in the doll’s condition carefully. The doll’s condition is described fully in the "Condition" paragraph above. Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item. Unless there is some major issue we overlooked in the condition report, we decline to entertain any proposals for price reductions due to a less than perfect condition report. Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
