Old German China Shoulder Doll & Hat Box; All Original with Intricately Stitched Clothes, Lace, & Embroidery - Curly Blonde Hair
This lovely Old Flaxen Haired German China Doll was found along with an old Bisque Bonnet doll that I have for sale in a separate sale; They were found together in a very old and fragile hat box wrapped in old fashioned, aged, and yellowed crinkly-type tissue paper. The doll is in nearly mint condition, but, the hat box that protected her all these years is not as perfect – the hat box will be included with this China doll. Also, I will combine shipping by exact weight in one huge box if both dolls are purchased (if both sales are won by the same buyer). All of the Original Intricately Stitched Clothing is fully intact: with ruffled collars, Un pantalon or pantaloons, and sleeves of extraordinary very fine lace, & exquisite embroidery. Amazing “Near Mint” condition other than yellowing at the edges of the clothing and hidden foxing spots throughout the Un jupon or petticoat under the dress – that does not show on display. She has ever so slight wear to the glaze on the feet if you look extremely close-up; And, slight signs of old age if you look very close, but, as near mint as you will ever find. Genuine bone china that is ever so slighty translucent when held up to light with a bluish tinged body. Obviously an heirloom used only for display or stored in their box for a very long time; You will still see the dust on the doll’s face, neck and hands that can easily be cleaned off with a soft cloth – I have not cleaned her, but, she has no stains or marks on the porcelain. No rubs (no paint loss) and absolutely no touch-ups or repairs. offerding begins low for fairness (see highly detailed photographs below). The doll has a soft body of the finest linen with gussets; All Original matching parts - china shoulder head, arms, and legs. The vintage snap on the back of the dress tinged slightly chalky from age, and is not marked if you look with a magnifying glass. No damages or repairs whatsoever, no chips, no cracks, no hairlines, no chigger bites whatsoever, and no repairs ever. Also, nothing missing, no flaws, no moth holes, no rips, and no stains - not even a speck or spot other than the foxing on the Un jupon or petticoat under the skirt, and no crazing at all as bone china does not craze - perfect! This was purchased from an estate in the historic town of Sedalia, home of the 19th century Bothwell Hotel and the Missouri State Fair. The streets are lined with antebellum homes and mansions where many items have been found stored for centuries in the 3rd story attics and boarded up 2nd story porches. See highly detailed pictures below. Measurements are as follows: 12 ½ inches in length. If you collect only the best like I do you will not want to miss out on these! I have never found dolls like this.(see pictures; very nice!). You will be able to tell right away just how very unique she is. Just a lovely doll!
