25" Old Vintage Antique Bisque Head Composition German Dolly Face Doll Betty:
I am pleased to offer you this lovely old "Dolly Face" German doll "Betty" and her newer little teddy bear. Incised on the back of her bisque head is "Made in Germany, Armand Marseille, 390n, DRGM 246/1 A7-1/2 M". Reference attributes to Armand Marseille, 1885 to 1930 Germany, mold "390n" is the "Baby Betty Dolly Face" mold. DRGM is a registered claim or trademark used by both the French and Germans. I do not know her past historybut Iwilltry to describe "Betty" with any flaws the best I can. Measures just under 25" tall being a bisque socket head on jointed strung composition wood body. She is strung fine and jointed at the arms, elbows, wrists, legs and knees with all fingers intact. Fingers are accented with red lines for that "life-like" appearance, I believe these are newer vintage replacement hands or they have been re-painted. Body shows overall wear throughout, light composition repair in places, scuffs, a little old built in dirt but intact."Betty" has a wonderful Dolly Face with open and close brown glass sleepy eyes that work fine, retains most of the upper lashes on her eye lids, painted lashes around the eyes, slightly raised brown brows and open mouth with upper teeth intact.Her lips are accentedwith darker color around the edges, there is a faint little dimple in her chin and wonderful blush on her "near perfect" face. I see no rubs or scratches on this face.I flashed inside her head and see no cracks or hairlines, there is plaster cement that was used to secure the sleepy eyes on rocker as most doll people do, a bit dirty inside. Her old mohair wig has seen better days, possibly original to her, there is a pate. Dress is violet in color with tiny buttons down the back, two buttons are missing. Dress has embroidered white accents, it is a very old dress and possibly original to Betty, there is an antique one piece slip with pantaloons, newer stockings and vintage black shoes. She wears a hand made cameo pin on her dress with working clasp. Her little teddy bear included with her.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 shown with sale.
