Large 23 Inch Melitta Doll With Neck Chip For Sale
A large Melitta doll made by Edmund Edelmann circa 1922.
She has grey glass sleep eyes which work perfectly, all of the original eyelid wax is intact and all of the original real hair eyelashes are on her left eye. There are top and lower painted eyelashes and multi stroke eyebrows. She has pierced nostrils and an open mouth which reveals two original teeth. She also has a tremble tongue but this has come loose.
As you will see from the picture she has a large chip around her neck hole, however a plaster piece has been attached to the head neck joint to ensure that it is safely attached to the body and cannot come through the neck hole
She still has her original mohair dark blonde wig which is a bit worn but suits her well.
She has a good clear bisque and is clearly impressed on the back of her head MELITTA - Germany - 12.
She measures 23 inches ( 59 cms).
She is on a good strong body which has been over-painted at some time, but this has been well done. Four of her fingers are broken. She has had a repair to the inside socket of her right leg and there is some gesso missing in places.
She is wearing and old vest and a green a blue satin and net dress which has some age to it.
A large girl with a lovely face who needs a good home.
