I have a huge antique bisque head chunky baby doll which has a missing composition arm and wonder if anyone would be able to help. She is a Schuetzmeister & Quendt. Mould number 201 / 15 and will measure approx. 29” / 30” long once put together again.
I have looked on all the usual auction sites and even tried doll hospitals in order to find either another arm or someone who could make one.
As you can see the body and limbs are extremely well moulded.
The arm measured directly across from the top to the end of the fingers is approx. 10.25” long. The hand is 2.75” across to the tip of the thumb. 1 7/8” across the lower part of the four fingers. The ball joint at the top of the arm is wooden with a deep groove and measures approx. 8.50” circumference (max).
I found her in a dog basket about 10 years ago. Most likely from the amount of dirt that is evident, she has been in a loft for a good number of years. I've grown very fond of her and named her 'Bonnie'. I will not give up on her and look forward to the day when she can be cleaned and dressed in the antique white dress that I have waiting for her!
Many thanks Valerie
