This is a 1860-1870's doll that is referred to as a Parian , They are like a unglazed China doll . Amazing any survived as their heads could break easy. They come with many hair do's and some are very elaborate with molded flowers in hair ect . She is a lovely doll bought at local auction
Maker is unknown as most are unmarked but is German made . She is 15 Inches tall . She has correct original body . This shows one way heads were connected . They used a few different ways . She has white kid lower arms . The painting on face is important to see a Antique doll vs a newer reproduction . The Bisque they used back then was high quality and has a translucent appearance also . She has holes in her ears to wear earrings and is dressed as a woman not child .Her dress is also shown .
