Doll is about 19" tall. It was my grandmother's (born 1892), so I assume it dates from about 1900. Head is bisque (I remember my mother telling me this). Body is a hard material. Articulated joints. Real eyelashes. Repair to head at neck. Remnants of sticker on back that says "Germany 2" . 136 with 7 underneath on back of neck.
Doll belonged to my grandmother. My mother had it at her house and now it's at mine. I assume it was my grandmother's from childhood.
