Victorian Bride by C.F. Kling & Co. #196-32 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
The dollhouse is having a wedding and here comes the bride coming down the staircase! Can't you just picture this dollhouse bride coming down the staircase of your dollhouse? Very lovely 6" tall bride made by the firm of C. F. Kling & Co. in Germany c. 1900. She has a gorgeous antique white silk gown trimmed with hand-made lace and with a very long double antique toule veil, so that one layer can be pulled forward covering her face or can be pushed back as pictured in the first photograph. She has a very unusual character face, as if she is thinking...do I really want to go through with this....or can I change my mind? Her molded dark blond hair is in a typical Victorian style, a top-knot at the top of her head with lots of curls and brush marks. Head, arms and legs are bisque with molded black heeled shoes. Lovely condition, with no breaks or repairs. There are numerous photos showing this lovely, hesitant bride. She is 6" high. Thanks to the research by Mary Krombholz, we now know the makers of these wonderful dollhouse dolls.
