    It says Floradora , Floradora doll by Armand Marseille
    She is found quite often along with AM 390 and 370 Floradora was mass produced doll.
    Very pretty :-)
    Armand Marseille dolls were produced from roughly 1885 until approximately 1930.

    About The Armand Marseille Doll Company:

    Located in Koppelsdorf, in the Thuringia region of Germany, the Armand Marseille doll company was at the heart of the German dollmaking revolution in the 1890s. Started by Armand Marseille in 1865, the company didn't make dolls until approximately 1885.

    This one has compo body like the last one you sent. I found her at a thrift shop yesterday. She did not like it there.
  6. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    Yes some came with kid bodies and some with full compo bodies . They are sometimes marked a little different and the kid bodies often had a stamp saying Floradora on them . I wanted you to see both . You rescued a beautiful antique doll and I am sure she is happier with you than at a thrift store :-) Nice find !
