    Doll is roughly 17"

    I did not try and see if there is a makers mark yet.

    I will update when i have more info.

    But i figured in the meantime i would share. Maybe someone has some insight.

    thanks for looking.

      Minerva Co made most of these metal doll heads 1900s-1930s . It should be marked on front at bottom of chest plate . They did painted eyes and and glass eye version .

      let me know if you see mark it might be a horseshoe stamp and or say Minerva .

      The clothes are sewn on and preventing me from seeing the chest. I am reluctant to cut off clothes.

      I second Manikin's comment. Looks like a metal head. Is the shoulder plate damaged, due to the way the fabric is positioned over it?

      the left shoulder i think is damaged or split. It doesnt have the same shape. Chinaheads, i think you are spot on. i am just a bit reluctant to perform the needed surgery to find out.

      Unless you're thinking of selling it and need to show any damage in photos, I wouldn't worry too much about removing the fabric. It's likely keeping the damage together (maybe a seam split?), I'm guessing that's the reason the sew holes haven't been utilized.

      Agree don't undo cloth which appears to be holding head in place . She has a low monetary value in today's market , so I would just enjoy her as she is :-)
