PETITE ANTIQUE ALL BISQUE GERMAN DOLL WITH SLEEPING EYES – 6.5″ HEIGHT
This is a gorgeous petite sized German antique doll that measures in height 6.5″ and ideal to be a companion doll to a larger sized antique doll. I would say she dates to around the 1890’s era as it was common around this time to have the moulded socks and shoes like this one.
The socket head is in perfect condition with sleeping blue eyes with the eyelid wax intact. She has delicately single stroked eyebrows along with finely stroked upper and lower eyelashes. She has nicely blushed cheeks and a red closed mouth. I believe her blonde mohair wig is original to her and when I prised it up to stuff the head to protect the eyes the pate also appears to be antique. I do not know the maker of this doll and it is only marked with P 607/I which is a maker not known to me.
She has an all bisque body that appears in its lifetime to have been re-strung at some time with elastic and there is a repair to the bottom of the torso along with some chips relating to this in the leg sockets that are hidden with the legs in place. She has wonderful brown moulded shoes and white socks with a blue painted band.
Her outfit is vintage but not antique and obviously has been made for her and is very sweet in a lovely mint green with white floral design and is two piece with a matching hat.
This is a gorgeous smaller sized doll and these all bisque antique dolls are getting hard to find.
