A great choice for beginner collectors, or simply lovers of German dollies, this sweet-faced girl is sure to please! While it is difficult to know for certain, as any marks on the lower part of the shoulder plate are hidden by her kidskin body, this girl is attributed to Bahr & Proschild, in an early mold. She's trussed up in a cute antique costume, with festive spring flowers in her hair, and is bound to make someone smile!

She has a closed mouth and pierced ears. She wears a soft brown mohair wig, styled in tight ringlet curls. She stands at 18” tall on her antique gusseted kidskin body with bisque lower arms.
This girl wears a darling white cotton dress, with inset lace on the bodice and sleeves and large tucks above the hem. Underneath, she wears a white cotton full slip with small tucks, inset lace, featherstitching, and lace trim on a flounce at the hem. On her feet, she wears white knit socks and tan leather shoes. She has pink and white flowers in her hair, and orange and goldtone earrings in her ears.
MARKS: [None visible]
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. The bisque shoulderhead is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, but does have some rubs and wig pulls. The painting is excellent and the modeling is crisp and detailed. Her bisque arms are in excellent condition, with only a couple pepper spots. The antique kidskin body is in good condition. The gusset joints at both hips and the left arm have been patched. The rest of the kidskin has some minor age-related wear.
