This diminutive dolly poses next to a dime, giving a better idea of her miniscule size and the detail of her all original crocheted costume. By Hertwig and Company of Germany, this lilliput lass is just 1.75 inches high. Her vividly colored and finely detailed crocheted outfit consists of a dirndl with a bright red skirt, a white blouse with a laced black bodice, and a little white apron. There is a matching red cap atop her molded light brown hair and a tiny basket of golden brown thread on her right arm (maybe she is little Red Riding Hood bringing her grandmother a basket of goodies). Her bright blue slippers are painted. Although her chubby little legs are stiff, her arms are wire-jointed at the shoulders. This plump tiny toddler is of rosy painted bisque. She is in wonderful condition, with her outfit still bright and clean. Except for some very small specks of on her shoes, her painted complexion is intact. This miniature miss would be the perfect doll for a lucky all-bisque doll to cradle in her arms or to decorate the nursery of a doll house.
