ITEM- Antique 1880's-90's Parian Bisque Molded Hair Dollhouse Doll Original Dress, Germany? DESCRIPTION- This is a fabulous 1880's-1890's molded hair hand-painted parian bisque dollhouse doll in her original dress.
Most of these are from the 1920's & the faces are not very detailed nor the hair, but this one is beautiful & has the best detailed molded hairstyle that is well-painted with dark lines skillfully painted in each crevice line so that it looks much more realistic, rather than the blob they normally look like. The blush & lips & eyes are not only molded better than most but painted in so much better detail that it sets this doll apart from others & especially later ones. Perhaps you know how to inspect this safely so I'll leave that to you. I put it in the category under bisque:German as that's where other similar dolls were placed, but I'm not guaranteeing it to be German. This doll makes me think about the book "The Doll People" that my daughter loves so much.
It will be the perfect edition to your antique dollhouse or roombox. This is a fair price, as dolls of this period are scarce. She measures 6 & 3/4" tall by maybe 2 & 1/2" at the shoulders. CONDITION- Aside from wear to the dress & lace including a portion on her left shoulder (see right side of the 2nd & 5th photo) there are no visible issues & all looks good but I can't see under the cloth, though I don't feel any chips underneath.
On the leg, I see a small spot that is simply a molded flaw & not damage (see last photo) but I wanted to point it out. I've tried to show photos so you can see most everything. There is a 1/3 heavy duty thin wire underneath the right arm which if pushed on moves the arms a bit, so I'm assuming it is part of the rigging of the doll's arms. It's not visible unless you raise the arm. Just be aware of this.We hope you will choose to do business with us. We describe our items thoroughly & offer many photos.
