Offering acharming old French boudoir bed doll. I do not know her pasthistory I purchased her from a doll estate, but will try to describe her the best I can, hand written tag attached says "Gerling Toy Co., NY, London, Paris, Germany, "Hotsy Totsy" boudoir doll 1926".I did not remove her original clothing to look for a makers name,mostof these dolls are unmarked and their clothing stitched up the back. Bed dollswere used as displays decoron the bed in the 1920s/1930s period. Measures 28" tall being a composition flange head with cloth stuffed body. I see no cracks on this composition head and only minor wear. I do need to mention a tiny hole on the right cheek (see photo #5), possibly a factory flaw I don't know. A wonderful face with "unusual"painted black eyes, the liner extends far beyond the eyes, blue shadow on her eye lids with black single stroke brows, closed mouth, light color blush on her cheeks. Light brown human hair wig is secure on her head,looks very old with a center stitched part, I believe her original wig.Her body looks to be in nice shape and well cared for,she has really long legs and long arms with dress material covering the arms and hands so I do not know if there are fingers, hands are all cloth.Her body is a "red" stuffed cloth. There are black shoes on her feet, this is how I purchased her so I do not know if the shoes are her original or a replacement. Orig clothing shows wear throuhout but no serious rips or stains, there is a half slip under her dress. I have taken plenty of photos.
