29" Big Old Antique German Wax Over Composition Papier-mache Cloth Child Doll For Sale
I am pleased to offer you this "impressive" larger size German shoulder head doll. I do not know the past history, if or what any restorations were madebut will describeher best I can. Reference shows similar dolls made in the mid to late 1800s by various German Firms such as Kestner, K * R and others. This doll measures 29" tall being a composition/ papier-mache shoulder head, "wax over" with straw stuffed cloth body, composition arms and legs with fingers intact. Light crazing on the composition arms and legs. Looking at the body the left upper arm has had a little sewing restoration with cloth for shoulder attachment. The arms do match but cloth has been applied to restore the upper arm, it is attached nicely. Cloth body may have had some stitching restoration, it is all intact with no leakage. Slightly turned shoulder head with beautiful colbalt blue glass open eyes, delicately painted brown lashes around the eyes shown wear, dark blonde striated brows, she has a closed mouth with darker wavy accent line through the lips. Light color blush on her "Impressive" little face. I do not see any cracks on this shoulder head, some wear throughout, scuffs with a little old dirt but nothing terrible at all. Blonde mohair is glued on her head. There is a "dime size" hole on the top of the head, possibly to pull hair through.I did not wish to remove the mohair to show a photo of this hole, it is there. Doll wears an old vintage two piece dress consisting of top and skirt with snaps intact, lace trim. Outfit is old and shows some wear but charming and appropriate for this doll. There are stained pantaloons, a replacement vintage half slip, stockings and shoes. This big doll has a "life-like presence" about her 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.
