This is a fine antique 19 inch tall parian bisque doll of the model known as the Irish Queen, and made by Limbach circa late 1800s. She is marked on the back of the shoulder plate with model number 8552 and the Limbach clover leaf marking plus the roman numeral II. This doll has a nice antique body with bisque lower arms and bisque lower leg fancy boots. Her antique clothing consists of cotton window pane weave pantaloons, plain cotton petticoat and chemise, and a wonderful red plaid dress with pigeon breasted gathered lace insert in front and matching jacket. She also has red wool knit stockings that have served to protect her wonderful bisque legs.
Condition: There are a couple of very minor flakes on the lower edge of the shoulder plate (see photos) but no other damage tot he shoulder head. Her right bisque hand is chipped on the finger tips. Her body is patched. Her petticoat has age stains.
She is one of the nicest examples of this model doll that I have found to date.
