Lovely 4.5"antique German China Doll Shoulder Head Exposed Ears--beautiful Face For Sale
Offered here for your offerdingconsideration is thislovely antique German china doll shoulder headwith exposed ears and a beautiful face! Standing just about4 1/2" tall, if assembled on a body, this head would complete a doll of about 17 inches tall. The interior measurements of her shoulder plate are 3 3/4" wide by 2 3/8" deep. Her face is beautifully rendered with a serene expression, hinting at a slight smile. She has red eye and nostril dot accents, and red lid lines over her blue eyes without white highlights. Thehead is modeled with abundant curls spilling over her forehead,and very full red cheeks, giving her achild-like appearance. Note the lines that suggest the tops of her plump shoulders.
There are no chips, cracks or hairlines,and in my opinion, she is free from any after market damages. I have looked the head over with a magnifying glass, and anything you see in the photos resembling a chip is merely a manufacturing flaw. I can easily see the glaze covering the little factory imperfections along the edge of her shoulder plate, suggesting that theseirregularities occurred during the manufacturing process and are not the result of later damage. Another imperfection to note would be the three areas of small, black specks in the glazed finish. The largest is on the right shoulder, just above the sew hole, pictured. There is another, smaller such example on her left shoulder, seen in the side view. There are a couple of tiny bumps (and I mean tiny!) around her nose crease, with which magnification is required to see. (For best viewing,mouse over withthe enlargement featureon the photos.) This is kiln dust or debristhat was fired in during manufacture. In the last picture she is shown with a couple of other antique shoulder heads I am about to list. While not included here, these can be viewed inseparate listings. Please take a look, keeping in mind that I would be happy to combine shipping!
