Antique Papier Mache Milliners Model Wood Doll Braided Bun 13.5 Inch
This is a wonderful Antique German Papier Mache Milliners Model Wood Doll with Braided Bun 13.5 Inch. This 13 1/2 inch Milliners Model doll is gorgeous with her rosy cheeks and brushwork braided bun. The papier mache shoulder head has some crazing as would be expected. The hairstyle dates to 1840s-50s and features brushwork/comb lines, a center part with the forward portion of her hairdo secured into the large braided bun in back. Her facial paint is striking with high cheek color, multistroke painted eyebrows, painted blue eyes with black pupils, white irises, red eyedots, red nose dots, smiling bow shape red lips with red dots to each corner, and a lovely chin. Her nose tip has a tiny ding with paint loss. She has carved wood arms, hands and legs with deep red painted shoes to match the deep red flowers in her dress. Please note that one foot is missing and broke off at the ankle join. She wears her wonderful Original cotton calico floral print dress and lace fichu. The neckline is even piped. The beautifully hand stitched original dress (sewn to her) has the wasp waist with very dense cartridge pleated gathers to the skirt, full puffed leg-o-mutton sleeves, and two long cotton petticoats and lace trimmed pantaloons (aged in color). The calico has some aging to the fabric, but is not quite noticeable due to the original color of the floral print background. This early 1800s doll is stunning and well proportioned.
