Galluba & Hofmann Large Standing Bathing Beauty Figurine
Up for sale is a wonderful old Galluba & Hofmann doll. She is mounted on a wooden base covered in cloth. She has a cheeky mischievous expression with a turned head and smoky blue eyeshadow. The doll is marked with numbers 5842 and those numbers are also on the upper part of her arms. This mold is shown in Sharon Weintraub's book on bathing beauties. Not including the platform she is about 13" tall. The body is cloth stuffed with straw - there is a stain on one leg. She does have bisque arms that are sewn on. The wig is not attached to her head so you can change it out for another pretty easily if you'd like. There is a hole in the top of her head that I guess was meant to use to attach a wig. The hole has some teeny tiny nips around the opening. Her right thumb has a chipped tip and the left hand has the thumb intact but the four fingers are missing. A nice, unusual bawdy bisque doll for your collection!
