8.5″ ANTIQUE ARMAND MARSEILLE HEAD ON REPRODUCTION BODY
This doll has an antique Armand Marseille socket head that is marked on the back 325, 5/o which is attributed to this German maker. It is free from damage apart from a little chip at the base of the neck socket that is unseen as goes inside the body. It is pale head with blushed cheeks, single stroked eyebrows, stationary blue eyes and an open mouth with little teeth. The blonde ringleted wig is a replacement.
It is on a composition reproduction body that is strung well. and the right size for the head.
This little doll could do with re-dressing for sure and currently just wears a velvet black frock with a lace trim around the hem with no fasteners up the back and little black lace up shoes.
A cheap little “starter” doll for anyone that loves the antique dolls and will be lovely with some TLC. These are also lovely for companion dolls with other larger antique dolls.
