29 1860's china shoulder head doll with modified flat top center part black hair. There are molded ringlets encircling the head. Unmarked but may be attributed to Kestner. Painted blue eyes with accents and lid lines, single stroke brows, rosy cheek coloring, accented nostrils and rosy lips. Head measures 7 1/2 tall with 3 holes in shoulder plate on each side.Older cloth body - possibly original - with china upper limbs. Dressed in vintage lace cotton dress and cotton undergarments.
I wasnt able to get the undershirt off to take photos and I didnt want to rip it, but I didnt notice anything amiss. Condition: shoulder head is excellent with no chips, cracks or repairs. There are just a few paint rubs on her hair and a small kiln mark on shoulder.
Sawdust filled body is clean with some wear on the feet. China arms and hands are excellent. Cotton dress is very old and has a few holes though they are less noticeable when the dress is tied together with satin bow. One of her black socks has a small hole as well. Please look at photos carefully for more details on condition and feel free to contact me with any questions.The item "29 Antique 1860's Civil War Era Modified Flat Top China Head Doll Stunning" is in sale since Saturday, November 28, 2020.
