China Doll Body 17 Inches Tall Last Chance
Antique cloth body, 17-1/4 inches tall, with china lower limbs and replaced upper close on limbs.
Final Reduction has been made.
The torso has the original age darkened cloth, while the upper limbs have been re-covered with newer muslin.
The long china arms are beautiful with shapely hands, and the lower legs have flat soled black boots. Note that one or the other of the china legs has been replaced at some point with a leg in the correct style and shape, however one leg has a pink bow garter and laces and the other does not. This of course is not evident when the doll is dressed and care was taken that both boots have flat tan soles and are of the same scale.
Upper torso measures 4-1/2 inches across and 2-1/2 inches thick front to back.
As shown, there is a cloth reinforcement on the back of the upper torso, likely from removal of whatever head was on this body.
Nice bargain body with excellent proportion for a china head that needs a replacement body.
