MY FATHER AQUIRED THIS DOLL FROM HER. THE DOLL WAS STILL IN THE BOX THAT SHE HAD IT WRAPPED AND STORED IN..... I THINK THIS DOLL HAS BEEN PUT AWAY, NICELY WRAPPED IN A BOX FOR 40-50 YEARS!
MY DADS AUNT WAS GERMAN.... EVEN GOING TO THE 1936 OLYPICS IN BERLIN! IT IS VERY OLD; THOUGH IN NICE CONDITION.
ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD IT IS MARKED MADE IN GERMANY-390- 4/0M. I THINK THAT IS WHAT I SEE WITH MY FAILING EYES. THE HEAD IS ATTACHED VERY WELL TO THE BODY. THE CORDS THAT HOLD THE ARMS AND HEAD TOGETHER IS IN VERY NICE STRONG CONDITION. THE KEY WAS WITH THE DOLL, AND APPEARS TO BE ORIGINAL.I TRIED VERY LIGHTLY AND ONLY A COUPLE OF TURNS WITH THE KEY. IT DID NOT APPEAR TO MAKE HER WORK. I DO NOT KNOW OF HER OPERATING CONDITION. I DID NOT TEST HER PROPERLY. THE GEARING LOOKS CLEAN IN THE BODY. IT IS VERY SIMPLY MADE AND COULD BE REPAIRED BY SOMEONE KNOWLEDGABLE WITH MECHANICAL DOLLS. I DO NOT KNOW IF THE CLOTHES ARE ORIGINAL OR NOT. THEY APPEAR AS IF THEY MAY BE. THERE IS SOME SLIGHT STAINING ON THE FABRIC. THIS LITTLE GIRL HAS VERY NICE DETAIL IN HER FACE; WITH GLOWING EYES.
HER EYES OPEN AND CLOSE WITH MOVEMENT I SUPPOSE. THERE OPEN/CLOSE ACTION IS VERY NICE.
HER HAIR IS A BIT MESSY; I DID NOT COMB IT. SHE IS A LITTLE TREASURE!! THERE ARE NO CRACKS; OR CHIPS THAT I SEE, ANYWHERE. I PHOTOGRAPHED HER IN HER BIRTHDAY SUIT TO SHOW HOW NICE THE CONDITION OF THE METAL BODY IS.SEE PHOTOS FOR OVERALL CONDITION.
