Morimura Bisque Porcelain Antique Doll On Composition Body For Sale

Morimura Bisque Porcelain Antique Doll On Composition Body

BIT OF HISTORY: Morimura Brothers (1876-1941) was a Japanese import house based in New York City, NY. They supplied bisque head German like copies of dolls to the American market and others, during World War I and after 1915-1926. They imported two basic types of bisque head dolls; Character Babies or Dolly faced dolls (Reference online Dollreference.com). This is a lovely example of a German Dolly Face with full description below:


Wonderful MORIMURA BROTHERS bisque doll on an orginal-finish composition body.


DESCRIPTION OF BODY:


Approximately 25-26 inches tall.


Body is in excellent condition with red detailing remaining on fingers and toes other than the left side pinky finger as described below.
Body is well strung without undue laxity or stress. She holds pose well. Her head does turn smoothly from side to side as shown in posing pictures.
On her left upper thigh there is some splotching of the paint which looks to be very old and perhaps done when both originally painted many years ago. Please mouseover to see upper left thigh area; it is minor in color change but can be seen in picture.


There has been a repair of little finger left hand . The paint does not match and does not have the detailing like the other fingers. I also see what looks like a reglue/repair of othe original first finger of the right hand (doll's right and left respectively, not the viewer's) Also the little finger of the right hand has been chipped off (?) at the very end---to just about where the nail would end.


There is what I would consider minor cracking of the hands.


Other than the hand issues as described, no significant damage to body. Colors and proportions all match up as if there has been no replacement of any parts. This is what appears to me to be a very well preserved antique composition body--please see pictures to assess probable age/condition for yourselves!


BISQUE HEAD DESCRIPTION:


Circumference 12.5-13 inches.


Condition of head is excellent without cracks or hairlines. There is a 1/2 pinhead or smaller area of color missing on her left cheek. There is an extremely minor rub about 1/18th inch in size on the same side, right down from the outer eye corner.
She has some residual glue/wig leftover. Otherwise her head is very clean.


Her original antique blue glass eyes are extremely well preserved with painted on lashes lower lids, full "real" lashes across the upper eyes remarkably intact for age. Eyelid paint is all intact as shown in picture with eyes closed.


She has four teeth; two in the center are larger with the outer 2 being slightly smaller and not as visible when viewed from the front.


Face paint remains vivid and luminous! This head is so well preserved.


MARKINGS ON HEAD ARE:
MB IN THE CIRCLE WITH A VERTICAL LINE THROUGH THE CIRCLE
''JAPAN' UNDER THAT
AND THEN THE NUMBER '7'.


Her wig is a new, very good quality synthetic in faux mohair style, long, wavy, and blonde. Her pate is custom fit styro with straight pins holding hair and hat to wig. Head is stuffed prior to pate application for safe photo session, handling and shipping.


When you take her from the box she will look as pictured. ... all you have to do is find a spot for her!


CLOTHING DESCRIPTION
Summer weight very pale lavender cotton well- made dress with lace trim and snap closures in the back.
Her costume also includes what pantaloons, thigh high white ribbed hosiery and faux leather lace up midcalf dress boots. She will also come with the flower basket as shown in the pictures and the lavender sheer net bow and headband.


She is so coordinated and perfect in her costume. Her face is beautifully painted and in great condition, a fine example of the artistry and observation skills of the Japenese artists, who truly excelled at capturing the look of the German dolls.


She is so optimistic and upbeat-- I can't look at her without smiling...a great doll for any collector!
