This doll is hand painted. The sewing is very well done and even forms her small toes and hands. There is a very hard material inside but the face is not soft fabric. It feels like a paper mache but harder. There is stitching everywhere, the head, the kneck, around the mouth.
This really looks like a one of a kind doll but there is a sewn on label that says F.A.O. Schwartz. F.A.O. Schwartz was around for 140 years and was well known in the doll industry.
There seems to be some kind of printed signature on one of the dolls feet, the other foot says Germany.
Please email or call me if you have any information about this doll or even a guess about it.
