This sweet little girl is from my "project closet," where I pack away dolls I had big plans for someday. She came from a local estate and was rescued from a shattered shadowbox. I was going to do something with her someday, but this poor pretty miss has not seen the light of day for several years and I have decided it it is time to clear out the closet and let this diminutive doll go to another collector (over the next couple of weeks, I plan to add more dolls from the said closet). By Hertwig and Company of Germany, she has a bisque head and lower limbs on a dark red fabric body. She is rather unusual, because there are molded ruffles at the cuffs. Of good bisque, she has a full sweet rosy facing her original blonde mohair wig. She is just 7 inches tall. This little girl is dressed as found. The vintage clothing is sewn on, but feeling through the fabric of her silky blouse, the shoulder plate feels intact. Her skirt is of a delicate net lace over tulle. Sometime over past decades, she lost her right hand and the seamstress who dressed her cleverly disguised the loss by stitching the stump to the skirt, tucked behind a ribbon bow. The wig is also a little fragile, but otherwise this little lass is in good condition and displays well. She is ready to go to a new home to be adored or restored.
