This listing is for an antique German china shoulder head doll made in the 1850s to 1860s Civil War circa. Reference shows similar dolls made by both Kestner & Conta Boehme.Doll measures 20 tall being a deep china shoulder head with 3 string holes on both front and back with antique cloth body with porcelain arms, fingers intact. Body has had a little cloth applied at the upper waist area and a little on the right leg, there is no sawdust leakage, body is together intact.
Her porcelain arms show a few line cracks if you look closely at my photo #10, but all together. I have shown a photo how the arm is attached under the shoulder head. A "beautiful" face with painted blue eyes, a white accent dot to the side of each pupil, black liner over the eye lids with coral liner over the black liner, long black single stroke brows, she a thin line between her lips that peaks up at the ends to make it look like she is smiling. There are a few black specs on her china face as you often find on the antique china head dolls. He 1850s/1860s flat top hairstyle features unpainted white center part with curls framing her face and molded curly locks around the back, a few places of paint loss on her hair, nothing terrible.
Doll wears antique drop waist dress with lace trim, two intact hooks down the back, you may wish to add another hook at the waist. She wears antique slip, top and pantaloons. Her top has stitching so I did not remove it. There is a cloth covering around her body torso from long ago, possibly for support for a doll stand, I did not remove it.
She wears stockings that have a few stitches to her body, her legs feel intact. She is not wearing shoes.
Doll displays well standing with a doll stand or just sitting. This is a lovely "Civil War" china head doll for collection or display! I have taken plenty of photos. Please look at my photos they will serve as part of this description. Doll stand is not included.
