This offering is for an extremely rare c.1880-1900 bisque swivel head character doll on her original composition body. HEAD: The bisque head is Belton style. It is angled, has a closed dome with two holes for attaching a wig. The head is 1 1/2” high x 1 1/4” wide. The overall height of the doll is 7”. The bisque has no damage or wear to the hand painted features or blushing. The doll has an open mouth with two square-carved teeth on the top. She's quite the sweet little character. Her inset indigo blue colored eyes are lovely. The head is marked “15. 7.0.” There is no damage to the bisque swivel head or wear on the features. The blond mohair wig appears to be the same age as the head, but it may be a replacement. BODY: The composition body is jointed at the head, shoulders and hips. It is original, has its original paint and is in very good condition as you can see in the photos. COSTUME: The doll wears a lacy body suit, a dress with a layered skirt of white tulle netting and a very delicate crocheted lace jacket with long sleeves. It is closed with silk ribbons. Her beautiful 1880’s style hat is hand made of satin and lace with a wide brim. Her tiny shoes and socks are also original and I didn’t remove them because they are so delicate and could easily be damaged. DOG: The doll’s pet Pomeranian was made in Germany of wood, paint, fabric and white rabbit fur. We dare not separate him from his mistress.
