German Antique china doll with braided bun stands between 22” to 23” tall. The doll’s head is slightly pink-tinted; her eyes are grey which makes her more unusual. Her cheeks and chin are gently mauve/pink-toned; upper lip darker in color than lower lip. Her well painted black hair with center part is swept back into a braided bun in the back. The doll has a light typical nose rub and a chip on the back of the shoulder plate from the left. Please see my pictures. No hairlines or damage to the head.
Her body is antique with beautifully molded china arms and legs. She wears painted boots. One arm has a chip. A cloth part of the body was nicely reinforced at some point to save it. The doll cannot sit easy, she prefers to stand. The body has a wire inside and it doesn’t let the body change the position easy. Although, she set down in the chair for some time.
The lady wears old chemise, antique underpants and hand embroidered underskirt. Her dress is antique and original to the time period she came from. It is nicely done with tiny pleats at the waist. Her undersleeves made of antique lace and reflected the style of her time. The silk bows and necklace with an antique pendant are finishing her ensemble.
Rare, unusual bun china with GREY eyes is ready for display.
