Stunning antique German China Head doll. She has what is referred to as either a High Brow, Flat Top or Civil War head and these dolls generally date to the period between the 1860s and the 1880s.
She really has a lovely face with less often seen brown eyes. Her head is in good overall condition but there is a small hairline in the back of her shoulder plate and an area on the back of her shoulders with some glaze/paint flaws or wear, both shown in the photos that may be an indication of a prior repair. There is also a small hairline on her front shoulderplate visible in the photos. I believe she is stuffed with a combination of materials including sawdust and softer plush material. Her legs are fabric covered and her lower arms and hands are leather.She is beautifully dressed and I did not feel I could safely remove all of her garments safely, but have showed as much of her as I could. Her body appears to be in good condition.
The dress is satin with tiny sea shell buttons. There is some wear light normal age related wear to the clothing. I do not know the history of the dolls or if any repairs or restoration has been done, so please look carefully at the pictures and ask questions as necessary to evaluate the condition of this lovely old girl.
