This darling 17.5" papier mache shoulder head has the cutest toddler type expression with open mouth and 2 lower teeth. Doll looks to be all original but could use a little primping. Possibly made by Schilling. The original wig is very sparse, but has original pate. The wax over hands has missing right thumb, dings to all fingers and seam split on left thumb. The wax over feet are nice with minor scuffs and do have most of the red accent lines over the toes. Hard stuffed cloth body in good shape with no breaks. It has a non-working squeaker in the stomach. The papier mache head is good with some light wear, paint loss and soiling. Face is sweet with feathered brows, sleep eyes and that open mouth. The gown that is 21.5" long from the shoulder down is really pretty. It has 4" of beautiful openwork designs on the bottom with scalloped edge and 3 little buttons in back. There is some dinginess and spots of soil plus the front lace panel on the bodice is tearing between the rows of pleating. Overall a very sweet looking, unusual papier mache head doll with nice gown that you'll enjoy fixing up.
