Many were hand made by the lady who collected them, unfortunately the family did not disclose her name when I bought them. They are all in great condition and I will describe any issues that I find. They are all very clean, if there are any minor marks I will not attempt to clean them through fear of causing damage. This charming doll is just lovely, she is approximately 30cm tall. The back of the head is marked Armand Marseille, Germany, 996 (mold number).NB 1984, A 2/0 M. I think this means the doll has been reproduced in 1984 from the original Armand Marseille mold no. This is only an assumption as the doll is in such beautiful condition that I cant imagine it would be an original. Perhaps the number 1984 is something else. Head, limbs and torso are all bisque and she appears to be strung well. There has been deterioration of the leather pads that were between the thigh hip joint. All the ceramic appears to be free of cracks, chips or repairs.
She has fly away hairs from her braids but overall a beautiful little doll in very good condition. She is all bisque with jointed arms, legs and head.
Like many of the dolls Im listing she has a feeling of quality about her.
