21 Inch ANTIQUE GERMAN PARIAN DOLL - 'EMPRESS AUGUSTA VICTORIA' - By ALT, BECK & GOTTSCHALCK. See page 46 in 'Identifying German Parian Dolls' by Mary Gorham Krombholz. What a wonderful antique German parian doll. This doll was made in the mid to late 1800's. The facial painting of this doll is outstanding; I am sure the painting was done by a seasoned painter. The bisque does NOT have any hairlines or problems as examined by a black light. Notice the sharpest of the hair; this must have come from a newer mold. The body if not original, is certainly old. There is a very small tear on the right side of the body, just below the shoulder plate. I love the legs and green leather boots. All her clothes are vintage. She wears lace trimmed pantaloons. And she has a lace trimmed underskirt. Her cotton dress is also lace trimmed with a plain black waist band. She is a wonderful example of this maker.
I am a UFDC and a NADDA member. This doll is from a smoke free home and has no odors I accept/prefer Pay Pal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, checks, Western Union. I ship anywhere in the world. When I send you an invoice, I will automatically add insurance for all porcelain and bisque items bought - this is mandatory. I ship USPS standard post which takes longer to get to you. If you want USPS Priority Mail or Overnight Express mail, you must let me know. In all cases, I do not charge any amount over the actual postal charges. I do have a lay-a-way plan. Thanks, Sharon & Ed
