1800s Old Antique German Wax Over Composition Cloth Doll W French Style Dress For Sale

1800s Old Antique German Wax Over Composition Cloth Doll W French Style Dress

I am pleased to offer you this "impressive" well dressed antique doll. I do not know her maker or past restoration history but will try to describe her the best I can. Reference shows similar dolls made from 1850 to 1910 by various German Firms. Measures 23" tall being a "wax over composition shoulder head, wax over wooden hands from elbow down on hard cloth body with molded painted brown leather boots. There is a cream and brown color tassel on each boot. Lower legs are red cloth.This old body is ingood condition with some minor wear, I see a few light water stains on cloth,for being 100 plus years old. There is a number "5" stamped on the upper back. Shoulder head shows pastline crackbut is all intact with possibly past restoration and old tape. It is secure.You "may" wish to do further restoration in this area, although wig covers it. Appears to have old writing in this area on the back shoulder head but the old tape and wear make it impossible to read. Doll has a lovely face with open blue glass eyes, heavily painted brown brows, painted brown lashes below the eyes and closed mouth. I do believe she has had paint touch-up on the lips, brows and lower lashes. There is a hint of blush on her face. Some wear on the face areas with a little built in dirt I have not attempted to clean. Long brunette human hair wig feels old, it is secure on a cloth pate on her head, I did not remove this pate with wig from her head in fear of ruining something. There is a hairnet over most of her hair.Absolutely gorgeous "old" French style two piece jacket and skirt have lace trim and net overlay. The black skirt under the overlay has a ruffle hem. The black netting has shiny goldaccents which makes it quite attractive.There is a broken snap at the waist area of the skirt that need mending. Jacket has tiny buttons down the front but only stick pin closure. A few areas of the skirt netting at the back are torn, I notice three holes, nothing too bad but they are there. She wears a vintage heart pendant around her neck. This doll displays well, is a"beauty" and would be a "Treasure" for a collection or display! I have taken plenty of photos. Please look at my photos they will serve as part of this description. If you would like further photos or have questions please email me. Offering to you "as is" condition shownwith sale.I do combine shipping and have many other dolls posted. Shipping costin the US would be $10.00 to $14.00 pending your location, outside the US priority mail international would be $46.00 and UP. I use plenty of bubble wrap and package well. Please note that Import duties, outside US taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility. Thank you and Good Luck!
