SHACKMAN/BORGFELDT BLONDE CHINA HEAD DOLL – 17.5″ HEIGHT
This doll was distributed by Borgfeldt (USA) as shown by the sticker on her shoulderplate. The company that made this doll though was Shackman, Japan. These dolls were sold worldwide in the 1970’s – 1980’s era.
She measures in height 17.5″ (45cm) so she is a nice sized doll. Her head & shoulderplate, half arms and half legs are bisque and the rest of her is cloth.
She has beautiful moulded blonde hair with a row of moulded red beads. The shoulderplate also has some mouldings. She has moulded boots painted black.
She comes wearing a red frock trimmed with lace, petticoat trimmed with cotton lace , pantaloons and a knitted over skirt. I do not know if these are her original clothes or not.
She has age stains on her cloth torso that are not seen when she is displayed.
