Antique Alt, Beck & Gottschalk Doll. Original blond mohair wig and one leather original shoe. Possibly original slip and bloomers. Wearing a earlier 1990s Gabriella dress and matching bonnet. Original leather body that is as it is infront of me not leaking sawdust.
Has age related leather repairs shown in photos best I can. Lower arms look original no chips to fingers. Head is perfect and had been lighted. Beautiful professional painting to her soft featured face.
Love the heavy eye brows. Open mouth with original tiny teeth. Bloomers need re stitched back as I opened them up at waist so you can see her nude. Upper arms were cloth covered over her leather by previous owner. Leather patches were on it prior to me.
Handle carefully as these leather body's are fragile. Alt, Beck and Gottschalk factory was located at Nautendorf, near Ohrdruf Thuribga Germany circa 1854 on.
One of the oldest makers of doll heads. From china heads to character dolls. She came in the one shoe and under clothing only with that original amazing mohair wig. Gabriela is one of the finest makers of period antique style doll clothing.
Doll is odor free cabinet kept all these years. The height of doll is being missed by shoppers so Ill state it here. It is about 24 tall. Those gold painted glass beads around her neck were on her when I bought her. This doll needs a long box.
She is worth asking price if not more. WE DO NOT PUT LOWER VALUES ON CUSTOM FORMS. This item is in the category "Dolls & Bears\Dolls, Clothing & Accessories\Dolls & Doll Playsets".
