Here is a 15" size 1 Schmitt & Fils child doll with piquant face, brown paperweight eyes, original stamped body with squared off butt, original wig, pate, chemise, earrings and possibly original dress.
The doll has a pressed bisque head with fine pale bisque and painting. She has almond shaped brown glass eyes with faint mauve /rose shadow under the brows& fine short black painted lashes top & bottom. Her Tosca brows are shaded and lightly feathered. Her mouth painting is well done with pale rose lips and pronounced upper bow highlighted with deeper rose. The lower lip has a highlighted inverted bow. There is deeper rose under the top lip and on the top of the lower lip with a white recessed space between.. Her nose is rather small and shapely with a little rounded nose tip. The nose dots are 2 toned rose. The eye dots are rose.She has softly bushed cheeks, nicely molded ears that stick out a bit and pierced ears. There is very fine pepper throughout & only visible close-up. There is a tiny white paint miss on her left forehead and a smaller one on the nose tip. These are visible only close-up..There is a mold rub or firing mark on the left temple under the rim. These are all typical, in the making, characteristics of early bisque dolls. They are indicators of age and do not detract from her appearance. There is tiny in the making chip like mold flaw at the head rim on the left back as shown. Her head has no rubs, cracks, hairlines or repairs. The head is marked with an impressed shield enclosing crossed swords & "SCH".
Her body is a typical Schmitt & Fils body with loose ball joints, one piece lower arms, squared off butt bottom with black ink shield stamp. The body is in remarkable condition with original finish , minor chips at the neck socket and joint areas. Hands and lower arms are intact with no broken or chipped fingers. They have minor soiling and finish wear on the tips of some fingers..
Her wig is hand sewn wefted human hair in a pale shade of blond. It has short bangs and is attached to what appears to be the original pate.
Her brown & purple plaid silk dress is all hand stitched and is lined with brown glazed linen. It is sturdy with minor loss of fabric at the sleeves. Her factory lawn chemise appears original with snaps added. Her pleated lawn under's are old, fit her and may be factory issue. They have been updated with snaps and elastic waist tie. Her leather shoes are old. They are not marked and are a tad large on her foot.
She is a captivating cabinet size doll in overall remarkably good condition.
I hope these views show how nice she is.
