17" Antique Papier Mache Doll Marks "superior" As Is Or Parts:
PLEASE READ BEFORE offerDING:
This sale is for a 17 in.Sonneberg-type papier mache doll. This is in "as is" condition and sold in parts, head, body and one arm. I have listed measurements for each piece separate below. Papier mache shoulder head withpainted facial features and blonde hair. No repaint to the face or shoulder plate.The back of the shoulder plate is stamped "Superior 2015". As you can see,her shoulder platewas broken and re-glued. The cloth body is the body that came with the doll. The torso and upper arms are stuffed with, probably, cotton batting. Lower legs are made of a blue cloth and stuffed what feels like excelsior. The body is firm and in nice condition. She has one composition arm, which is not attached. I thought maybe someone could do something with this. Please read condition and measurementsbelow andlook at all of the photos as they are part of the description.
CONDITION:Scuffs to the face and hair. Shoulder plate is a wreck, however, still makes for an attractive doll as long as you put a dress on her with a high neckline. Original patina to the single arm with light scuffs. Fingers are intact. Nice body with soiling, but no seam breaks. Cloth upper arms are useable with one seam having a little fraying. This is not bad and quite useable. No odor and from a smoke-free Environment.While I make every effort to describemy items to the best of my ability I encourage you to look at all of the photos so that you can form your own opinion of condition.
