Antique porcelain doll Bisque Head Jointed Body 34 with original clothes/shoes
This antique Victorian era porcelain doll, Bessie is her family name, has been in our family since, well, the Victorian era. I know little about antique dolls, so you tell me---is she German? Bessie belonged to my great aunts who were born in upstate New York, Ballston Spa if you want the specific location, in the 1880's. Bessie's clothing---the dress, petticoat, and bonnet---look to be original, as are her leather shoes---and yes, they show their age.
After all, how would you look if you were 140 years old? However, her porcelain head is in fine shape, and her jointed body articulates well.
I inherited Bessie and, as my daughters are now grown and out of the house, decided to put her on the market rather than have her sitting in a closet for the rest of my life. I live in Honolulu, about as far from Ballston Spa as you can get in the United States, but with Fed Ex you could have her in a few days.
