Perfect Bisque and a desirable model number 1123 1/2 on this turned head that will make a 30 to 32 inch doll! Here is one for you doll makers. She would have once had a white kid leather body, but will be happy now to have a cloth one, and comes with good reproduction pink bisque large forearms in the right size. Her human hair wig is lush and full, you will want to lightly glue it in place, with the bangs a bit lower on her forehead. She is shown with it off to highlight the perfect bisque. Of course you can use a different wig of mohair if you prefer. A baby's white dress sashed at the waist will dress her easily. I prefer strong colors on my chinas and papier maches and cloth ones, but white is best to me on these dolls with their delicate complexions. Priced at $245 which includes priority mailing. Someone with a really big old body might also want her.

18 inches tall with a fine costume and a good paint job, this one is a fine addition to a collection. This boy, made by Margie Herrera is dressed after a well known antique Izannah Walker doll. He is priced at $165 plus $15 for mailing. Yes his toy horse comes with him. Read about Margie on the internet.
This very pretty German wax doll has hair of an unusual color, coffe and cream rather than blond, I have had another smaller example of this doll with the same tan colored hair and bright lively eyes. She has the usual scuffs and lines of very old wax dolls, but still has lovely coloring and a very nice expression. The old body looks original to me and is handstitched, leather fingers, side seams and all, to the knee. From the knee down the feet have been replaced with other nice old ones. I am including good wax over arms that match her perfectly in case the new owner would wish to change out the worn old brown leather ones.
This everyday dolly was not meant to show her shoulders, and they were accordingly never finished at the factory. There is a chunk missing from her back shoulder edge. Her blouse covers all of this just fine.
This doll comes with extras. She has a very nice dressy blouse that was with her when she came to me . She would like a simple full skirt and will then be display ready. She has interesting rosebud earings. Priced at $265 including priority mailing.
These little sewing helpers held a pincusion on a sewing table. I think they are European but do not know the country. The hand painting surely reminds me of our Holland Delft in the corner cupboard. I have seen them in New England Antiques shows but rarely been able to purchase them as they are always quite dear. Click the photos to see detail. There were other little sewing items made in this genre.
Condition: Gorgeous clean little painted treasures in very good condition. One lacked it's pin cusion and I used a piece of natural linen to replace it. That same one has lost a small round mirror which would have been glued to the side.
Price $235 for the two including priority mailing.
Here is a nice little study doll just less than 13 inches tall, an example of an early type of commercial American doll. In the third quarter of the 19th century, doll heads here were made of pressed leather, pressed cloth, pressed papier mache, gutta percha and hard rubber like this doll. Some people would restore the paint of her complexion, her eyes and mouth and hair are fine as is. Her body with it's squeaker box and composition hands and feet are original to her. Like the Springfield wooden dolls, the paint is usually very worn on these dolls.She is priced at $45 including priority mail to you.
