OVERVIEW: This doll is simply stunning! She is an early German doll with a closed mouth, marked simply 136. She has an incredible face and her excellent composition body is the early style with 8 loose ball joints. She is fully dressed in antique and vintage clothing, hat, shoes and stockings and she wears a fine antique human hair wig. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:

HEAD: Her pale bisque head is especially beautiful! Her mouth is closed, and she has amber paperweight eyes with deep threading. She is beautifully painted with neat lashes and multi-stroke feathered brows. Her lip painting is especially fine with accents, shading and a defined white space. She wears a lovely waist-length antique human hair wig. She is marked 136. Examination: On the rim, there is a small uneven area and a pin-point wig pull.

BODY: Her desirable early composition body is heavy and sturdy with 8 large loose balls at the joints. One hand has been washed and there is a small area of wear on her butt. Otherwise, the condition is very fine with no repairs and nice all original finish.

CLOTHES: She is beautifully dressed, including an antique jacket, vintage dress, antique slip, antique bloomers, vintage hat, antique shoes and antique socks. The long antique jacket has a collar, lapels, and puffed sleeves. The dress is sleeveless with dropped waist and pleated skirt. She has a full slip and bloomers trimmed with eyelet. Her hat is custom-made and signed. She has black leather shoes and thigh-length black stockings. Everything fits perfectly. The jacket has some fragile areas, the shoes have wear and the stockings are mended. The dress, hat, slip and bloomers are all in excellent condition.
