Hi! I found this sweet little doll and brought it home to give to my daughter. I started taking a closer look at it and it seems special. The clothes, although old, are very nicely made (she has multiple layers, such as petticoat). Her back is marked Germany. Does anyone know anything about her? Thanks in advance! Julie

    because photo is hard to see the painting on face and I can't see body hard to be sure if antique or repro . Can you post a closer look at face and also her body by lifting up her dress ?

    Thanks for close up photo ! yes she is an antique doll from early 1900.!
    Here is a link to one similar you might want to look at . Your doll is nice and dressed in correct era clothes !
    She is a Bisque doll . A small doll sometimes called a doll house doll . Love her !

    Jewels because there were many many German doll makers at time without a symbol on her or numbers it is hard to ever know who made her . It would not change her value either way . There are dolls that it does matter who made them the larger ones as in anyplace there were German companies that did better quality than others but most important it the larger bisque doll face and how common they are sets price a character face always sells for more than what we call a dolly face ect . You have a nice little doll and I would just love her :-)
    Thank you for sharing her !
