Offered is this CHOICE 18" pink tinted German China doll with a covered wagon hairdo and a very appealing young face.
Her thick paste pink-tinted shoulder head is perfect without damage or restoration and features wonderful painting, a bright eyed expression and a darling pug nose. Her covered wagon hairdo is arranged in ringlet curls and extends further out than most of these hairstyles. This particular model is harder to find than other covered wagon China dolls.
She is on an antique stitch jointed cloth body with leather arms. The body has stitched reinforcements at the knees and extra fabric at the waist. Since the knee joints are delicate, I chose to not remove her clothing. She wears layers of antique undies and the most wonderful two-piece wool plaid dress. The dress is most likely made later for her out of old fabrics and has lots of little moth holes throughout, and vintage lace edging. She also sports antique socks and shoes.
This is a choice example of a mid 1860's China both from her painting and sculpting and her costuming.
