Original Antique Doll - Made in Germany. Bisque Head / Composition Body - Marked: "Germany 550 A1M DRGM". This is a truly adorable and rare 13 Marseille 550 character doll on a teenage composition body. She has beautiful blue-gray set eyes, a curly blond mohair wig, and superb face painting on her closed-mouth head, which is clearly incised on the back. Her cream-color silk-and-lace dress is quite beautiful and very becoming on her.
It has touches of silk ribbon and silk embroidered rosebud. She has socks, shoes, and 2-piece undergarments. She displays well and will be a gem in your collection. Beautiful antique condition -- from a non-smoking environment.No issues found with the bisque after careful examination, other than a tiny, professionally-restored chip under her left eye. The composition has average paint loss and age chipping. Also, her right pinky has been professionally restored (as pictured). IMPORTANT: Besides the noteworthy issues mentioned above, EXPECT any antique doll (bisque/composition/leather/china/wood) to ALSO have: (1) SIGNS OF AGE - for example: toned/crazed/chipped composition, minor wig pulls, loss of "hair" lashes on bisque heads, not-so-tight stringing, etc.
(2) MINOR CONSERVATION WORK by previous owners/collectors - for example: reset eyes in most cases! , repairs to wig, repairs to clothing, touch-ups on composition/finish/paint, etc. Any MAJOR issues -- hairline crack, total repaint, etc.- would be itemized above, but these normal age/conservation details are not. They are to be expected. I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. Provided it's rated the same (or faster) than the service you chose. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, or U.

As often happens, it's the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they're doing.
And then, when they realize they've ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective. BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls -- so, please understand that they won't be in brand-new condition.There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls. IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION. This item is in the category "Dolls & Bears\Dolls, Clothing & Accessories\Dolls & Doll Playsets".
