Large Hertwig China Head Marked 136/6, makes 18

Status: Available Price: $55.00
What a wonderful, large-size china head (head only) made by the German firm of Hertwig c. 1880. This splendid large size head makes a doll around 18" or 19" high....needs an early cloth or leather body. Very well made, she has great detailing and hand painted features--pale blue eyes, with red and black outlining on the upper lids and a well-formed small mouth and prnounced chin. The black hair has a very deep center part with good detailing of curls and waves....ears are partially exposed. Incised on the back 136/6 which can vaguely be seen in the photo. Overall height of head is 4 3/4", from inside shoulder to shoulder is 3 3/4". There is a small, very faint hairline on the front of the bottom of the shoulderplate about 1" long--it is faint and doesn't even show up on the photo. The rest of the china head is beautiful. This is great for displaying on it's own on a shelf, or for someone who has an old body or can make a body. These early large German china heads are getting harder and harder to find.
