We offer for your consideration a gently displayed 21 porcelain Armand Marseille bisque doll head with mostly intact composition hands and a stunning clean cloth body and legs. This doll is one of hundreds of dolls we bought from an adult lady collector downsizing her estate. Please note, her face and body are as close to factory fresh as you can find for a vintage antique crying, or "talking" doll. Her crying box is perfectly intact in her back. Please handle with care; it is celluloid.When she is picked up and turned over she makes a cry sound that sounds like mama. --- ----Her eyelid wax is close to the original appearance. Her sleep eyes open and close smoothly. The doll's head measures 16.25. I cannot remove the cloth from her neck properly, so I cannot read the markings. I can read "Armand Marseille Germany".
Her cloth body is clean and odor free. It does show the most minor pin point size hole an inch down from the front muslin cloth collar. Unfortunately, she shows the most minor crazing and wear on her hands. The composition is worn off from the right pinky and ring fingers.
Her right foot's fabric is slightly stained. ---The owner was an elderly lady and kept this doll displayed in her showcase, so she appears free of dust and fading. You can see the gown is a vintage antique style off-white dress with the slightest age related discoloration.
The under slip or dress is actually an antique apron styled as an under gown. --This doll is brought to you by a pet and smoke free home and estate.You can feel confident with us. My husband has packed many hundreds of similar style bisque dolls, and we have received 100% positive reviews from his professional packing skills. ---The doll was stored in a cool dark room and shows no age related wear other than her hands. Her fabric is clean and ready for display. Her head, face, and hands show no chips, hairlines, or cracks. Her face is bright, bold, and unfaded. I do not see any discoloration, stains, or missing stitches on her torso, arms, or legs. She will receive extraordinary care to help ensure safe travels to you. We will tape cotton balls over her closed eyes to keep her glass sleep eyes closed. Her hands will receive individual wrapping. Her head and neck will receive careful attention.
