China Doll 1800's Ethnic Outfit Rare
Offering this beautiful 10.5 inch tall, old china doll, exquisite painted face, brown hair with sausage curls in the back. has a wreath of silk green ribbon and tiny piny satin rosettes. Her dress is made of a purple crepe like material, lined in a lighter shade of violet linen gauze, with cream satin ribbon decoration; the sleeves are made of a fine cream color netting with black lace ruffles. She wears a black lace cape-like shawl with cream color lace trim and a rose satin rosette closure. Her under slip is muslin cotton with a scalloped edging that has embroidery, her pantaloons have a fine hand tatted lace trim. She has a cloth stuffed body, arms and legs. Attached shoes are black cloth with heels. Her body is made like a woman including a bust. She carries a folded paper fan. Her head and shoulder plate are porcelain and she is marked on the back. The only part I can decipher is "KRUG", definitely European, most likely German. Very good condition, no damage, no tears or holes, no cracks or chips, one tiny spot on left leg, does not detract. An exquisite addition to your collection or the perfect gift for the doll lover, a very rare doll especially in this condition!
