This china lady, with her Greiner-style hairdo and painted lashes, is generally attributed to Kloster Veilsdorf, circa 1850’s. She has a perfect glazed porcelain shoulderhead and her antique cloth body could be original. She is fully dressed in all-antique clothing, including her dress, unders, stockings and shoes. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

Head: Her glazed porcelain shoulderhead has no damage or repairs. She has a Greiner-type hairdo with 10 round curls surrounding her face and numerous curls in back. She has brown eyes with painted lower lashes. She has circular painted nostrils and a wide white center part. Examination: She has speckling and pitting (mostly on her shoulderplate, hidden by her dress) and wear to her hair. These are typical of dolls from this period.

Body: Her antique stitch-jointed cloth body is sewn by hand. She has brown leather hands with individually stitched fingers. She has a patch on each elbow and one on the back torso. This body is in generally very good condition for its age.

Clothes: She is wearing all antique clothing. Her dress has an attached over-skirt and closes with hooks. Underneath, she wears a camisole, half-slip and bloomers. She has black knit stockings and black oilcloth tie shoes. Everything fits perfectly and everything is in very good aged condition.
