1880's German Bisque Fish(Mermaid) Girl Novelty . This little doll was my grandmothers and she is precious . I wonder who thought of making a fish doll :-) Priceless to me as a little girl I remember her in my Grandmothers cabinet . She is marked Sn 970 is attributed to Germany
She is not marked country of origin so dates pre McKinley act
The bill which would become popularly known as the McKinley Tariff was reported to Congress on May 21, 1890, by the Ways and Means Committee of the United States House of Representatives, of which William McKinley was chairman. McKinley was also a major proponent of the bill. The bill became a law in October 1890. It increased the duties on wool, woolen manufactures, on tin plate, barley and some other agricultural products and remitted the duty on raw sugar. The bill had a reciprocity feature which provided for the remission of duty on certain products from those countries which should remove duties on products imported from the United States. The law was repealed in 1894.[1]
