If this early German doll reminds you of some of the Jumeau dolls that was Wilhelm Dehler’s intent. This lovely doll with her gorgeous face was made for the French Trade Market. She is early with her straight wrists as the newer more flexible wrists came in just about the time of her making. Please study all of the photos as they have a story to tell about this doll. She stands about 16 and her head is PERFECT. There are no cracks or hairlines. There is a rough spot on the top of the rim which I believe is wig glue. There is wig glue around parts of the top of her head. She has a roping as seen in the photos. No idea what it is for and since she has a wig, not concerned at all. She does a dark spot on the bottom of her chin as seen in the photo. I have no idea what caused it & it seems to be a rough spot. Her EYES have it being rayed just like the early Jumeau dolls. Her face also resembles those wonderful dolls as well. Check out the dolls in “The Jumeau Book “, to see page 289 with the rayed and outlined eyes & page 308. There are many more examples in that book that this doll is an attempt to make her Jumeau like. Her body is in great shape with no repairs, no repaint. She comes with a sweet little dress, her human hair wig, underpants, shoes and socks. This is a beautiful doll looking for a new wonderful home:- I will miss her but it is time. Her head will be packed and diapered. She will be wrapped In bubble wrap and will packed plus she will be insured:-The starting price does not reflect what I feel is the value of this doll.
