25" Vintage Antique Bisque Head Composition German Marseille Dolly Face Doll Tlc:
I am pleased to offer you this lovely old "Dolly Face" German dollwho is in need of a little TLC. Incised on the back of her bisque head is "Made in Germany, Armand Marseille, 390,A9 M". Reference attributes to Armand Marseille, 1885 to 1930 Germany. I do not know her past historybut Iwilltry to describe her with any flaws the best I can. Measures 25" tall being a bisque socket head on jointed strung composition wood body. She is strung a little loose and needs to be tightened up a bit,jointed at the arms, elbows, wrists, legs and knees. Her right hand is MISSING the third and little finger. The left hand is MISSING the little finger. Wear, scuffs, built in dirt throughout this 100year or so old body.This dollhas abeautiful "Dolly Face" with open and close brown glass sleepy eyes that work fine, eye lid wax is worn off the eye lids, shehas painted straight lashes below the eyes,slightly raised brown feathered 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.Inside this head is a bit dirty,there is plaster cement that was used to secure the sleepy eyes on rocker as most doll people do, I do not see any cracks or rim splits. I do notice the glass sleepy eyes on the rocker have had glue repair, they may need further repair (a little loose). I see a tiny chip on the inside rim of this head, nothing terrible.There is a long dark blonde vintage synthetic wig that slips over her head, no longer a pate. A few hairs out of place it could use a combing.She wears an old vintage gown with blue embroidery accents that snaps down the back, there is a matching slip and bonnet. Items are clean and in nice condition. She wears old knit booties on her feet. 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. This dolldisplays nicely, has a "beautiful" face and would be a "Treasure" for a collection or display. She may require a little TLC and restoration but worth it!
