She has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features, in the AM 1894 model. She has brown glass sleep eyes, with painted upper and lower lashes, brown multistroke brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, a slightly dimpled chin, and pierced ears. She wears a blond mohair wig, worn with the top section pulled into a ponytail, and two braids at the sides, pulled back to meet in the middle, with the rest of the hair loose. She stands at 17.5” tall on a stamped Heinrich Handwerck fully jointed wood and composition body.
She wears a nurse’s costume, consisting of an antique blue and white striped dress with white cuffs on the sleeves, a crisp white antique pinafore with a red cross pin, and a white cotton cap. Underneath, she wears a pair of white cotton pantaloons. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and white shoes. In her ears are a pair of earrings with round blue glass beads.
MARKS: 1894 / A.M. DEP / Made in Germ. / 2 [back of head, incised]
1 / Heinrich Handwerck / Germany [side of torso, stamped]
CONDITION: Generally excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The eyes sleep well, with good alignment, while the molded and painted features are nice and precise, for an overall cute doll face. The body is good, with most of the original finish and the Handwerck stamp, and good sturdy stringing. “Sweet Janice” has been written on the back of her torso in black ink, which does not appear to be original. The wig is soft and supple, with no smokey odors, and fits the doll well. The costume is good, with only minor and typical wear. The cap is a replacement, made of antique materials. Overall, this is a great doll!
