Antique China Doll Child
Antique China Doll, Child
Antique china doll, antique head, professionally made new body. This antique head has some tiny pinpoint firing flaws but has no breaks, cracks, chips or damage of any kind. She has a really pretty child hair-do and face. I have pointed out the pinpoint firing flaws so you know she has them, but they are hardly noticeable and don’t detract from her charm. She is a nice size, 19″ tall.
Her body is a professionally made new cloth body with china arms and legs . It is firmly and smoothly stuffed with sawdust, a very nice body. I have shown photos of her nude and dressed, and lots of close up photos of the head so you can see for yourself.
Her dress and slip are antique dotted Swiss voile from the 1800s. I was given a dress once worn in the late 1800s by a friend’s grandmother, and made her doll a dress from it, and had enough left over to make the dress and slip for this doll. The tiny lace on the slip bodice and the pink double faced silk satin ribbon is new. the drawers are newer 100% cotton batiste. The dress, slip and drawers all fasten in the back with snaps.
For your interest, i have put in a photo of the original owner of the dotted swiss dress, the photo of just the head, and a photo of her daughter being photographed in the dress many years after the original owner died.
