Listing for the Larger Doll.
These precious little German-made china head dollhouse dolls measure about 6 and 9 inches tall, and date from the early 1900s. They were sold unclothed, and little girls were meant to hone their sewing skills by making them dresses. When made often they have their legs delicately stitched together, to prevent breakage from clacking against each other during shipping.
This large doll is in excellent condition and has no chips or missing parts of porcelain. The body has been hand stitched and is also in very good condition. These dolls are very collectible and are a charming gift for someone wanting to start a collection or whop already collects.
China dolls first began to appear in the 18th century although they were far less available than the wood, gesso, wax and papier mache dolls of the era. China was imported from the East to Europe, until the secret of porcelain making was revealed, and Germany started to produce fine china in its own factories. By the first part of the 19th centuries, china head dolls were claiming their place in the home.
