Handwerck Child Doll with a bisque head and compo ball-jointed body circa late 1800s to early 1900s. She has lovely facial coloring, sleep eyes, open mouth with 4 upper teeth and pierced ears. On the neck is marked "69 - 12x / Germany / Handwerck / 4". She was sitting down in my curio cabinet for at least 20 years and I did not change a thing with her, same outfit etc. When pulling her out of the cabinet and undressing her this is what I found.Issues: She needs to be completely restrung... The compo body had been repainted and there are some marks/chips.... The eye lids are white (not painted)..... There is a rough area next to pate at side of head. I see no cracks/hairlines in the bisque. The outfit and wig are appropriate. The outfit is wrinkled from sitting and wig needs a little fixing of the curls. I have really enjoyed her through the years as shown fully dressed. Not for the mint collector.
