Half Doll
Firstly, let me say that vintage items are items previously owned and worn. I am not referring to a specific period when I say vintage. I am falling into line with a lot of people who call used items "vintage". So, I will add further information about a piece if I have further details. For example, if the item is genuine Art Deco, I will say so.
A pretty half doll made from porcelain. She is approx. 4 1/4 inches in height and about 2 inches measured across the arms, elbow to elbow. She wears a very pretty bonnet with turquoise green on the inside of the wide brim. The reverse side is white. It has a large pink feather which drapes over the centre front. Her hair is long and curled and very light brown in colour (or perhaps some would say blonde). Her face is very well molded. She has dimples either side of her mouth which is touched with red. Flushed cheeks and black eyes. The top she wears matches the colour of the hat and it has sleeves which terminate at the elbow. They are frilled with white. There is white decoration down the front forming a narrow V shape and in the lower part of the V there is pink ruffled lace. She has an impressed number on the back which is 15716 (I think) and she is marked Foreign on the front side. I think she is German because she is very well detailed, particularly in the face.
