Offered is a chunky German body dating to the 1880's with lower bisque arms and a kid lined bisque shoulder plate (plate currently not attached). The bisque arms and shoulder plate are in perfect condition. Someone has cleverly added a cloth reinforcement to the upper torso in order to add cotton string ties to hold the shoulder plate down. This can be removed and the shoulder plate can be glued down as well.
The body can be used with an early closed mouth German doll.
The body measures 14" tall and the shoulder plate is 5" across the lower edge and has a neck well opening of of 1 7/8" across.
