MAX OSCAR ARNOLD ANTIQUE HEADED DOLL ON REPLACED BODY – AS DESCRIBED – 9″
This is a put together doll with a sweet little face but she is priced cheaply as not perfect or original. She measures in height approximately 9″ (22cm) (a little more if you take into account her wig).
The head has obviously at some time been dug out of the ground as she has a rust mark towards the top of her head and at the back of her head also along with missing paint which occured when they were under ground for a long time. She has a couple of flea bite chips to her eyelids that are not very noticeable and it looks like her stationary blue glass eyes are original to her. She has an open mouth and some teeth. She has not lost a lot of the colour to her face so that when she is wigged you do not see the faults. The head was made in Germany by Max Oscar Arnold and has their symbol on the back of the head and within it MOA, 150, Germany, Welsh, 11/0. The blonde wig is a vintage replacement.
Her composition body is an appropriate vintage replaced body in good condition and is strung well.
She comes wearing a crocheted cream silk frock and underneath she has a cream cotton petticoat but still needs a few items of clothing.
With a little TLC this will be a lovely doll to display with a larger doll.
