4” German all Bisque doll, with painted eyes, molded painted blond hair and fully jointed body, including a swivel neck. The doll is peg jointed at the arms and legs, and the legs have painted molded painted heeled boots with brown soles, white socks, brown painted stripes under the knees, and three strap decoration with lightly molded tassel decoration on the toe of the boots. The molded hat, felt outfit, and painted backpack looks to be original to the doll. I have not removed the clothing, it is sewed onto the doll. This doll will need to be strung as the original elastic is loose from age and storage. Circa 1890 era. I looked the doll over and can see no cracks, no repairs. Unmarked.
