    I think your doll is made of Gofun in Japan looks to be the 50's to 70's . Gofun is made from ground sea shells or oyster shells crushed to cover the mold of their face .
    Traditional Japanese dolls have a heavy opaque finish made of ground sea shells called "gofun". Part of the artistry of traditional Japanese dolls is how well the gofun is applied completely covering all doll parts. Gofun is applied in a traditional way with a lot of sanding and buffing between each layer. The end result is a silky smooth luminescent white surface. The gofun finish is so beautiful in itself that only minimal facial details are painted over it. In Japanese art of all kinds "Less Is More".
    Gofun Japanese example of one similair to yours . It is not exact same doll but made the same way .
