Antique porcelain bent leg baby doll, 10

Antique porcelain head doll with composition body, from my grandmother's collection. She is about 10" long, is marked on back of her head P.S.//23//Germany//0...we haven't been able to identify this doll from the mark, so any information offered would be greatly appreciated. We have been told that even though the body is a very vibrant pink, it is probably original to this doll. We have posted the clearest pictures of the body we could get, to show both the good points as well as the issues. First of all, the issues: there is a tiny chip in the compo in the crotch,one toe in the left foot has a rub, and the big toe on right foot has a small chip off the very tip, there is a crack in the compo part way down the front of the body and on the left shoulder, some compo missing between fingers on left hand, and the body is lumpy in spots. Good points: has all fingers and toes, is tightly strung and has red lines between all fingers and toes. The head does not appear to have any cracks and no chips found, with blue sleep eyes that open & close easily, painted eyelashes on top & bottom, short feathered brows, open mouth with 2 undamaged teeth and a felt tongue. The porcelain does not seem to be of as good a quality as the other antiques, do not know what this means. Please feel to ask questions, we are learning as we go, since
