Excellent early German cloth doll body with stitched on ribbed stockings and blue leather boots and tan leather arms.
Body is factory made with double-jointed hip section, which allows it to sit nicely. It is horsehair stuffed.
Measurements: 20 inches from top of torso to bottom of boots. 5-1/4 inches across the shoulders to where the arms are stitched on and about 2-1/2 inches thick front to back.
Condition is very good. There is an old cotton slip cover on the upper torso and matching fabric on the upper arm cloth. This was done a very long time ago as the fabric has the very same age staining as the rest of the body. The tan leather arms have some stitched and glued patches as shown, but they are in much better than condition typically found. Otherwise, just some soil from age.
This will make a doll about 24 inches tall with the proper head of parian, china, wax, papier mache of the era.
