Excellent early factory made doll body 16 inches tall, with stitch-jointed limbs, stitched on Red leather boots, glazed blue cotton stockings, and blue corset, with tan leather arms. Known as Goldsmith type.
These in tact bodies are becoming harder and harder to find with each passing year and finding one with nice arms is exceptionally difficult.
Beautiful early body in fine condition with only fading and age discoloration to the body as expected. Upper torso measures 3-3/4 inches across between arm seams and 2-1/4 inches thick front to back.
The red leather boots are worn and torn as shown, but the good news is that they can be removed or replaced. The stitching is such, that when removed, the blue fabric stocking fabric will be in tact underneath. You could then add a pair of boots or actually repair the ones already there by adding more leather and stitching it on.
This body was from a 18 inch china with a seriously damaged head and would make a doll between 18 to 19 inches tall based on style of head.
