Bisque Head Doll w Kid Body, Gusseted Joints, Open Mouth
Beautiful doll with a bisque head and shoulders and kid body and bisque forearms and hands. She has lovely blue open eyes (remain open) and an open mouth with two teeth showing. Her ears are not pierced. Her sawdust is beginning to leak out of a couple of the gusseted joints, which are at the elbows, knees and the hips, a condition that can be cured with a bit of stitching. One of the fingers on one hand has a tiny chip on it. It is easier to feel it with your fingertip than to see it as the fingers are not extremely defined. The kid body is clean and unmarred and her costume is in average condition. She has no shoes. Her costume looks a bit French with its unique and imaginative combination of colors and fabrics and ribbons. She is 21" long approximately. Her hair is also intact and appears never to have been removed. The doll and its clothing are from an estate and it probably dates to the mid to late 1800s. The bisque shoulder head has no marks on it save for the numbers shown in the photos which I believe is a 7. She appears to be a Simon & Halbig doll, based on pictures on page 569 of the Collectors Encyclopedia of Dolls by Coleman. Dolls are not my specialty so if you recognize this doll, your identification will be added to the description and much appreciated. If you would like to see additional pictures, I have several.
