Cuno Otto Dressel made some rather delightful bisque-head child dolls, with this “1912” girl being one such example; she has a bisque socket head, with big brown glass sleep eyes, a fully-jointed wood and composition body, and a delightful open mouth. Her head is topped off by blond curls, and she wears a wonderful red and cream dress, with a matching hat. This beautiful angel is in great condition, and is a great way to add a classic beauty to your collection without breaking the bank!

She stands at 22” tall, with a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, an open mouth with four upper teeth, a dimpled chin, and selectively-blushed features. She has thick dark brown brows. She stands on an antique wood and composition body, fully-jointed, with the original finish. She wears a blond short mohair wig with curls.
She wears a beautiful costume, with a matching dress and hat: a modern maroon-colored dress, in the classic antique Bebe frock-style, with white lace and faux button-down front, with long sleeves. Underneath goes a white cotton half slip, pantaloons, white socks, and cute little black shoes.
MARKS: Made in Germany -COD star- 1912 - 4
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The glass eyes sleep well, and have good pupil alignment. The wood and composition body has good, sturdy stringing, and has good original finish, with only the most minor and typical of age wear. The left forearm may be a replacement, but it is a good match regardless. The costume is good, with only minor and typical wear.
