Most likely of GERMAN ORIGIN circa 1920's his wonderful treasure measures a total of 8" high with a base diameter of 5" in width, with a lovely hand painted bisque HALF DOLL attached to the top of the cushion, which acts as the doll's skirt! It is BEAUTIFULLY FASHIONED with fancy detailing including it's original AQUA BLUE silk cover with it's original SILK RIBBON embellishment, and a fabulous bodice top made of tiny pink SILK FLORETTES and black netted trim!
The doll itself is made of PAINTED BISQUE with arms bent to the hips, and represents a DRAMATIC FLAPPER with blue painted elongated eyes, rosy cheeks, and eyeshadow, reminding us of a BOUDOIR DOLL that was very fashionable during that time! But what we like best about her is her wonderful original thick and unusual AUBURN MOHAIR wig that has been crimped for a wavy style, also "the rage" of that time! With the exception of some age wear to the paint on the bisque, and a small stain to the silk fabric of the skirt, the doll is in overall good condition and will make a CHARMING PRESENTATION!
