Antique 10" Black Papier Mache German Commercial Doll Body
This is an excellent antique 10" tall commercially made German doll body for a black papier mache shoulder head. The body is centirely original and lacks only a suitable head to be complete again. It has a brown cloth body stuffed with sawdust and papier mache composition black lower arms and legs. The legs are painted with vivid orange stockings with black garters, and black low heeled boots with gold lining around the top.
Measurements: 10" tall, 2.5" across shoulders, and 1.5" deep at the top.
Condition is overall remarkably good. There is some old plaster residue on the top of the body. the arms and legs have some minor scuffing and crazing. There is a small chip on the top of the left hand.
This body dates from circa 1880s. If you have a shoulder head that needs this body then you know how hard they are to find. Grab it now. I have hung onto this fantastic antique body for a long time in hopes of finding a suitable head. I can only conclude that YOU have that head and NEED this body. So I am relinquishing it.
