Most charming 24" ( 62 cm ) unmarked German wax-over mâché shoulder head child with brown glass sleep eyes ( head stuffed with tissue to avoid falling out while in transit ) , blond molded fancy 1860's hairstyle with loads of molded curls going in all directions and held in place with a blue molded hair band ( so-called " Alice "-style blond type ). She has similarly constructed lower arms and ( bare ) feet with a muslin stuffed body with sewn joints at shoulder and hips. The costume is an antique dark blue and white speckled cotton dress with a single white cotton cut -work slip. Although she has some typical age wear she is in remarkably good condition considering age and type with only minimal crazing and deterioration. A sweet little girl depicted a young innocent child of her time......................US$ 350.

10 1/2" ( 27 cm ) German papier-mâché shoulder head doll on firm narrow waist leather body with wooden arms and legs with flat painted shoes. Although at first glance she may look like a typical so-called " covered wagon "-style doll she actually has a unique hairstyle although somewhat severe  in nature.  Like the " covered wagon "-type she has a slight center part in middle of head but the hair is swept back very tightly covering all but the very front of the ears with very tight curly short curls at nape of neck as opposed to the neatly arranged vertical curls. Also she has the atypical BROWN painted eyes with a simple dress of dark lace over a linen slip. For the advanced collector of these so-called " milliner's model " dolls who wants something different yet at the price of a common and ordinary one............US$ 475.
