This is a small baby doll with label Ari, made in Germany, No 10.
I am trying to determine the exact year this doll may be from.

I think it's from the '20s - '50s but then again I found on the internet a doll that is very similar to this one and is labeled as antique.

This doll has threads which are holding the hands and legs. And it's a celluloid doll. I find it very cute. Any clues about the period?:)

    Hi you little doll appears to be a dollhouse doll . She looks like plastic but could be celluloid hard to tell from photo's. I would date her late 40's into 50's . Lots of people use term antique loosely . Where the term vintage is more appropriate as we know a antique should be 100 yrs old or older . She is very cute and the company produced many doll house dolls so your exact one may not show up on a search. These dolls are rather inexpensive to buy in today 's market .

    so far I found out that if written ARI in a triangle, like mine, it's a Riedeler, August dolls 1864-1972...
    Still I don't know which year is it from

    Thanks again!
