This cloth body is the type often attributed to Hertwig and Company of Germany. The body is 10.5 inches long and approximately 2.25 inches across the shoulders. Although there are no arms, it retains the legs with china lower limbs. The china lower legs are 2 inches from the sole of the foot to the knee. They have molded brown heeled ankle boots, bulbous calves, and painted garters tied in a bow. The cloth body is stuffed with sawdust and has sewn on yellow panties in the same loosely woven fabric as the body. The china legs are in excellent condition and can be used as replacements for antique china head dolls with missing or broken lower legs. Although the seams on the body are sturdy, there are scattered holes over the torso and upper legs that would need top be patched or sealed with white glue if you wanted to also use the body.
