Rare Huge Antique Bisque Doll - Armand Marseilles A17m - Lifesize Beauty - Wow For Sale

Rare Huge Antique Bisque Doll - Armand Marseilles A17m - Lifesize Beauty - Wow

Up for offer is a rare find, a very large antique doll by German dollmaker Armand Marseilles.  She is marked A 17 M and is a whopping 41 inches tall! Her bisque head is just beautiful and is free of any chips or cracks.  Her fully jointed composition body is in nice condition for its age, though it does have some scratches and shows wear in places.  The biggest flaw is on the back of one of her forearms, as you can see in the photograph. The red painted outlines on her toes can be seen, though it is faint and it looks like it may have been covered with a finish long ago.  All of her fingers are present, though there is a bit of a crack around one of them.  The red outlines on her fingers are mostly not showing.  There is a covered hole in her back (though the covering has torn), so she may have originally had a voice box, but that's just a guess.  Her eyes broke sometime in her history, though one of them is mostly intact and still has the wax and eyelashes attached.  I'm including all the pieces as they may be useful in restoring her.  She also came with a wig which may be original, but it is not in very good shape.  I don't know if it can be salvaged but I'm including that also.  She does not have any teeth.  Her eyebrows are molded and feathery and beautifully painted.  Her bisque is creamy.  She does have one little dark line on one cheek though I'm pretty sure she came from the factory that way.  It is not very noticeable.  She comes wearing a slip and bloomers, and a sleeveless white dress.  The slip closes with safety pins and has torn somewhat in the back.  The slip and bloomers may be original to her, but I don't believe the dress is.  In the last photograph I show what she looks like with her eyes held in place with tissue, just so you can get an idea of what she will look like.  Please take a close look at the many photographs for the best idea of the doll and her condition.  The small doll and bear are just props and are not included in the sale. With a little restoration and a new outfit, this rare beauty will be stunning and a wonderful addition to any collection!  

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.  I accept PayPal only and payment is due within 3 days of the close of sale.  I ship via United States Mail and the price quoted includes tracking and delivery confirmation.  A signature will be required upon delivery. Sorry, but this doll is so large and fragile that I am not offering international shipping at this time.  Thanks for looking and happy offerding!
