1880’s WAX DOLL HEAD PROJECT – LARGE 7″ HEIGHT
This is an antique wax doll head from around the 1880’s era and is an ideal doll project for someone with the ability to tackle sourcing a body and finishing it off and likes early antique dolls.
It is a very large head and measures in height approximately 7″ and is approximately 5 1/2″ from shoulder to shoulder.
It has had a repair on the back of the shoulderplate at some time in its life and has a seam seperation across the top of the head (see photo). It is wax over composition and does have the original brown glass eyes but they have fallen out of the head. The lip painting is original and she needs a wig and body.
This would make up in to a large doll of around 26″ or longer.
