Vintage Replacement China Doll Body 23 Inches
Vintage replacement doll body in a very hard to find 23 inch size, with ceramic lower arms and legs. The legs have molded boots and painted blue ribbon garters. Boots have tan soles.
I would estimate the body to be from the 1940s or 1950s.
The body is jointed at shoulders, hips, and knees. It is sawdust stuffed.
Measurement across shoulders is 5-1/2 inches and thickness front to back is about 3-1/2 inches.
Condition: Excellent. No leaks or repairs, no crazing to limbs. Toe of left boot is chipped and there is a flake to the bottom of the heel. An shown in my annotated photo, the left leg is a bit longer than the right. This is easily corrected by re-positioning and stitching at the hip joint. The legs from the knee down do match in length, so that single adjustment would correct it.
A very nice replacement doll body in very good condition.
