Antique Fulper Bisque Head Baby Doll-orig. Body & Wig-20" :
This sale is for an American made antique bisque head doll. She was made by the Fulper Co. and is marked on the back of her head. The head is free of any damage and has the original sleep eyes and wobbly tongue. The eyes and tongue are set differently than the German and French dolls with a black clay type material. The head is free of any repairs, hairlines, or chips. The wig is mohair and is also original. There are some stiff areas around the bottom edges from the glue. The wig is a little sparse from age but to be expected. The body is also original but the original owner put WHITE ADHESIVE TAPE on any area that started to have paint lifting. There are a few spots around the neck opening that I left in place. The legs were practically covered with it so I did remove it but did not try to clean due to the severe paint lifting/cracking. The arms do not have the crazing issue but are a little faded and the tip of the index finger is missing from her right hand. She measures 20" tall and has been restrung. Her clothing is all antique but is not original to her. The clothing is in good condition and consists of an antique baby christening gown with beautiful embroidery, slip, hat, socks, and diaper. She displays beautiful as she is or you could watch for a new body for her on . Please email with any questions or if you need other photos. Thanks!
