This china doll was produced by the German firm Kloster Veilsdorf in the 1850's. The shoulder head is 4.75'' and has no sew holes.
The china shoulder head has no chips, cracks or repair. The hair is smoothly combed with a wide center part. There are 14 vertical curls around her head with exposed earlobes. The rarer brown eyes have molded lids, white high lights and painted lower lashes.her clothes are fabulous.There are some typical flakes in her hair in the back and one kiln mark on her forehead. The nose is narrow and has accented nostrils. She stands at 18.5'' but I displayed her in a chair which really showed off her clothing and boots.
The body is slip covered in pink twill and the arms and legs were re-stuffed. The china arms have spoon hands . One leg has an old re-glue. The orange boots have a scalloped painted closure with buttons. The boots are almost flat with a slight curve at the arch.
Miss KV is wearing a cotton knit camisole , a snap front corset and embroidered eyelet pantaloons. She has a cotton slip and a wool slip with red lace and feather stitching. The cotton antique turkey red topper has cartridge pleating. The antique skirt has a tiny brown print and red trim.
This spectacular display ready doll will come to you with her victorian braided memorial hair pin!
