17"antique Scherf1901bisque/leather Body/blue Sz6 Shoes Armand Marseille Am Doll For Sale
This 17 inch doll has an undamaged bisque shoulder head and a beautiful, antique, gusseted leather body with undamaged bisque lower arms. Incised at least in part, GERMANY//P. SCH 1901, it was manufactured by Armand Marseille for the Peter Scherf doll factory of Sonneberg, Germany. Missing its eyes, it otherwise has a charming face that is detailed with thick, feathered brows, painted lashes, porcelain teeth and a deeply impressed chin dimple. The sawdust-stuffed body is exceptionally clean and in excellent overall condition. From shoulders to toes, it alone measures 14 inches. Gusseted at the hips and knees, I find only two tiny openings at the derriere area. It is costumed in antique clothing that shows its age, black, antique net stockings and a pair of antique, Victorian, baby-blue cloth tie shoes. Having a stamped size; 6 on the intact and original cardboard soles, both are in excellent condition structurally, without tear or missing laces. Although one is missing the ruched floral decoration on top, one could easily be made to match by a clever seamstress. With a little work, this antique doll will be stunning. Please see my numerous photos to follow, as well as my other sales for more great, vintage and antique doll related items.
