A lovely china head doll with the most beautiful face.
Her facial painting is excellent with no rubs. Her black moulded hair is good with just a few tiny bits of paint rub. Her head and shoulderplate are perfect.
She measures 23 inches and is on a cloth body with the stamp on to say if is hair filled. She has composition lower arms and the fingers are a bit nibbled. Her lower legs and feet are all cloth. Her body is in nice condition.
She is impressed on the back of the shoulderplate with the number 176.
These china heads are early dolls and I would think she dates from around 1870.
I have dressed her in a red,blue and black pure silk check dress which is similar to what she would have worn.
