I'm trying to learn more about this doll. The back of the head reads: Made in Germany//201 18/0//DEP. There are a few other indescript markings on the back, as well. The legs are each marked by the hip joint with what appears to be 14. The 4 is clear, I'm guessing at the 1. The head has an open mouthed smile with teeth. (You can literally see through the mouth.) It only stands about 7inches tall.
I bought it for $1 yesterday at a thrift shop. I removed the clothes/wig it came with. I have no reason to believe that they were original. I thought the cork? body, wood arms/legs, and stringing held in place by tiny wood pieces would help with identification more than the heavily bobby pinned wig and the Made in Hong Kong dress.
The stand it was on had a modern $2.97 price tag. I assume the shop thought that was the original price of the doll. I kinda doubt it.
