This lovely little doll is a Theodore Recknagel bisque head doll in original dress. She has deep blue inset pupil-less eyes, painted eye brows and eye lashes open mouth with tiny teeth. Her body is composition placing her late 19th to early 20th century. Her socket-ed legs are stick straight and may be wood ending in sewn on leather tiny shoes. She has high mesh leggings which I haven't tried to remove so as not to damage. Her hair is original, a white blond. She is marked on the back of her head "1907 (mold mark) Dep R/A" with a 12 or 0/2 which would be a size.
She is in fine condition as pictured. This German Recknagel doll has an original old tag and is from a lifetime doll and miniature dealer collector. She measures a petite 9.5-10".
