This is an exceptionally large 26 inch tall circa 1860s example of a blond bisque child doll with blue glass eyes by Alt Beck & Gottschalck. The shoulder head alone measures 6.25" tall, 7" across the shoulders and 4" deep at the base. She has a very nice antique cloth body with beautifully modeled bisque lower arms and stitched on red leather boots with green and red striped cloth 'stockings' above. Her antique clothing consists of slip with cotton blouse like top and wool skirt, cotton chemise, red cotton print skirt and a faded cotton jacket with china buttons.
Condition: The head has no damages, however there are 2 manufacturing flaws resulting in splits through the center back sew hole and the doll's right front sew hole. I have filled those splits so the sew holes can be used.
I love the deeply modeled anatomy of this model, clearly made to be a young chubby child. She also has a slightly turned head. Hard to find in this large size. The striped fabric of the stockings is quite something too.
Offers considered, except on Red Tag sale items and on items with final reductions.
