    Hi if your dolls head is marked Kammer & Reinhardt /Simon & Halbig (with a A) 23" 117 mold. It is a reproduction of that mold ot is not a original antique doll , It is made from old mold in a doll making class and also should have been dated otr initialed by who made her in class . She really barely looks like like mold 117 from photo and is a much copied doll but whoever painted her did not capture her the way original looked . Sorry to have to tell you your doll is probably from around 1980's or 90's and is just makes for a decor piece . Welcome to CW Just a word of caution never rely on a antique shop to to date a doll or a family member , learn what the old bisque looked like by seeing many many antique dolls in a museum . I hope you did not pay much .

    No mark of an A on the doll next to 117.

    Oh in the future a they never made porcelain bodies like that back in 1800's-1940's era . The would be composition . The only dolls with porcelain body were tiny dolls and no joints just could move legs or arms or not movable at all . If you see another doll like yours with that body it is not correct .
