Vintage Unknown Afro American Wax-over Porcelain Doll - As Is:
VINTAGE UNKNOWN AFRO AMERICAN WAX-OVER PORCELAIN DOLL - AS IS
Purchased from the estate of an avid collectorabout 25 years ago. I have no idea about the origin of this doll before me. The head seems to be porcelain. The white you see is the remains of where it was once a wax-over. It could be easily removed, but I have opted to leave it as it is. The body and limbs are obviously newer than the head.
The head is a wonderful sculpted character. See profile picture. She has a regal lift to her face with great detail. Hair is sculpted and back in a bun. Upward glance of eyes and open mouth w/teeth.
No identifying marks.
Cotton body is well made. Old clothing: cotton pantaloons, half slip and pink cotton dress held together with pins.
No doubt a one-of-a-kind addition to your collection.
