Dollhouse Girl by Kling w/ Bootines #145-06 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
This great little dollhouse girl was produced by the German firm Kling c. 1885, marked 123-10 on the back of the shoulderplate. She has a demure little expression on her face--a very pouty closed mouth with large painted blue eyes, which are finely executed for such a small size. Her bisque head is solid dome with her original brown wispy mohiar wig. Her remarkable shoes, which demonstrate how early she is, are molded bisque high black bootines, which are quite rare in this size, with 2 straps and white stockings with a blue line just below the knee. Her body is cloth with bisque lower arms and hands. Her original wonderful dress was very well made in the style of the era from pink and beige striped silk and trimmed with lace at the neck and cuffs. She also wears her original slip and pantaloons and a sweet little hat at a jaunty angle on her head. She is 4 3/4" high, a perfect size for a young girl. Very nice condition with no breaks or repairs. The last photo pictures her posing as Little Bo Peep, minding her sheep. (The sheep in is just a prop and is sold separately.) This photo gives an idea as what can be accomplished by combining dolls and accessories in scenes.
