21" Turned Head Antique Wax Doll GERMAN FRENCH Working Squeaker Blue Sleep Eyes
This is a stunning late 1800s antique doll most likely made in Germany or France
She measures about 21" tall and has a wax over composition turned head on shoulder plate, wax over compo lower arms and lower legs, with molded on high heeled brown boots, a mohair wig, stunning blue (original) sleep eyes and an open mouth with 4 teeth
She comes on her original straw stuffed body that has a cardboard squeaker box inside the chest
It still works great and squeaks loudly when you push it
This doll is marked only with a some indented dots on her shoulder plate, so I'm not sure who exactly made her
She came from the private collection of a local estate filled with many rare antique dolls
This doll is in excellent condition overall; I did find a chip to the thumb on one hand as well as wear spots on the tips of her boots, mostly likely from being stored face down
Her wax head and shoulder plate are in excellent condition with just one minor line to the back of shoulder plate; no cracks, indents or melting to face
There is normal age wear to her body, but no major damage
Her antique clothing is wonderful, with heavy eyelet and full undergarments, very clean and in nice condition; you will find a few minor specks and some yellowing
This doll would make a wonderful addition to your collection
I don't believe I've ever seen a wax doll with squeaker inside the body
Both doll and clothing are fresh, clean and odor-free and comefrom a smoke-free home
