Please examine all of the photos, they are part of. Bahr & Proschild was known for making some of the most beautiful German dolls ever made, this doll is no exception. She is marked on the back of her head: 224, 12. It is known that the Bahr & Proschild Co.Put their head molds that numbered in the 200's and 300's on both German and French bodies. This #224 is on a French body and was probably meant to compete with the U. She has feathered eyebrows, original re-set blue glass eyes and a shaded open mouth with six set teeth. She has pierced ears with replaced "pearl" earrings.
She has a nearly invisible hairline repair near the rim of the forehead on the right side. I've had this doll for a long time and the repair hasn't changed a bit.
Her wood and composition jointed body is well strung, is in great condition and is in it's original paint with normal wear. Her clothing has been replaced. The underwear, shoes and socks are newer.
She wears a "pigeon-breast" style cotton batiste dress, it's clean although there are some stains. It's not original but fits her as though made for her.
This beautiful dolls head is stuffed with paper so the eyes can never fall out and break. Her pressed styrofoam pate is lightly attached and her replaced wig is simply pinned to that. This dolls beauty just shines.
