Tiny 3 ¼” ( 8cm ) German all bisque doll with one piece head and torso, separately strung arms and legs with molded and painted white stockings with blue garter edging on top, and shiny black molded “ Mary-Janes” with one ankle strap. She has a closed mouth, tiny inset brown glass eyes, and still retains her original brown mohair wig covered by a red felt and white lace trimmed hat and original sewn-on dress made of a red crepe blouse and attached short white gauze pleated skirt and attached white cotton nickers. All appears to be completely original and with no noticeable damage or repair. As clothing is originally and tightly sewn all around the doll we will NOT remove the clothing for photographs of the torso-upper leg region but no have no reason to believe there are any problems as it appears solid to the touch. ……………………………..SOLD

3 ½” ( 9cm ) one piece bisque figure in the “ Frozen Charlotte “-manner but without the outer glazed finish and perhaps a little more attention in sculpting in a more realistic manner with more “ ladylike “ lower rear area with heavier thighs and slightly protruding belly. She has a bald head with remnants of original hair wig under lace cap, realistically painted facial features with eye shadowing and blushed cheek, and gold luster decorated boots with slight heel. Unfortunately, there is an old hairline around top of right leg as it meets the torso. It is impossible to discern with absolute certainty if this is just a hairline or if it had been off and totally reglued but it has been done as well as possible without a full porcelain artist restoration and thereby offered “AS IS “ ,and , priced to reflect the lack of a perfect presentation status. Lovely nonetheless and with a loose dress and/or skirt concealing the leg a nice and very different little example of a “Charlotte “-variation!……………………….SOLD
