22 Antique turned head bisque shoulder head C. M. Bergman doll on Kid Body

Identifying this doll was quite a challenge, but I believe I finally figured it out. The marks on the back of the neck(which I could not capture on photo), are an anchor with a W on the stem and the #2015. Bergman , a German firm, produced dolls for distribution in the United States, around the turn of the century.

Was one of those distributers. The anchor with the W is his mark. Bergman bought bisque heads from many of the top German doll making firms.

I believe that this turned head, open pate, shoulder head was produced by Armand Marseille for Bergman. The number 2015 is attributed to A.

This doll stands 22s in height , has an auburn human hair wig, sleep eyes and OM with teeth. The kid body as would be expected has places that split 2' dryness of the kid. She is wearing cotton stockings up to the knees, which I chose not to disturb. The bisque head and hands are intact with no cracks or lost fingers. I believe that her outfit is probably the original.

It consists of a burgundy colored crushed velvet dress with lace detail and flower and ribbon at waist, a matching hat with feathers, and pettipants and 2 slips, one to stiffen out the skirt. She is a very attractive lady despite her age and displays beautifully as I have tried to represent in the photos. The item "22 Antique turned head bisque shoulder head C.
