I just found this little sweetheart at an antique shop yesterday. I was thrilled because I believe it to be an early S&H head, but I'm not sure about the body. The bisque color and texture match perfectly. The head has what looks like a tiny "17" low on the neck, but the body has no marks. It is a peg jointed body, which seems early, but it is chunkier than most of the early S&H or other dolls. I've checked all the books I have and have seen a similar face on a more slender body with shoes, that's it. I would like to know opinions about the maker (S&H or other) and whether that body is original, or what the body should be.
