China Head in the Flat Top Civil War Style
China head
Hair: Flat Top, Civil War (1850-1890)
Blue eyes
Dating from the 1800s, this large china head is like peering into the eyes of history. It has a restored shoulder plate that has crazing on top of the shoulder restoration. The doll's head has been repaired across the left chest plate (see photo) where it has aged and weakened. The wall of the chest plate was strengthed by an inner application of some sort of overlay.
There is wear on the ridge of the back curls and on the top back crown.

Wax Doll, possibly a Pierotti or a Montanari
Wax doll, 17" tall  
Noted doll expert Jan Foulke appraised this was doll as either a Pierotti or a Montanari. See the Jan Foulke appraisal of Aug. 31, 2008, below.
Click to see enlarged doll photos, submitted to Jan Foulke for appraisal.
This is a 17-inch antique doll with wax shoulder head, arms and legs made in London, England. It is similar to the dolls made by the Montanari and Pierotti families, who brought their wax making skills from Italy. Pierotti is credited with inventing the Royal Model Baby in the early 1850s. Queen Victoria had many babies during this period and interest in them spurred the production of luxury wax dolls, many done as portraits of the royal babies. The Royal Models were shown at the 1851 Exhibition and were very well received, though expensive. Other makers jumped on the successful bandwagon, so if the doll is not signed or labeled, it is difficult to know the maker. The dolls continued being made until around 1900. Although older children and even adults were depicted in wax dolls, your doll appears to be a baby because of her stout face and short hair. She should be dressed in an elaborate Christening ensemble with dress, underwear, hat and robe. Her condition seems to be excellent, although lacking some of her hair, and she doesn’t seem to have her real eyelashes and eyebrows. Perhaps they are worn away, or perhaps she is an economy model and didn’t have any."
- Janice H. Foulke (August 31, 2008)
Buyer writes: I received my doll today [Jan. 15, 2010] very happ. I have wanted one for a very long time. My grandmother had one that got put on the mantlepiece over the fire and it melted overnight! She was so disapointed as at that time, 1900; you only got a toy very rarely. Anyway, I will think of my grandmother when I look at her. Can't wait to get an antique bonnet and gown for her as I think that's what she needs to really make her look her best!

Notes from an appraisal received on this doll from Jan Foulke:
This is a doll made in Germany in the 1890s, primarily for the American market. The maker is unknown. The head is composition or papier-mâché (either term is correct), as are the lower arms and legs. The rest of the body is cloth, and appears to be original.
She has stationary dark pupil-less glass eyes.
She has an appropriate wig of mohair or fiber

Greiner Papier-Mache Shoulder Head Doll
Antique papier-mâché, shoulder-head doll PROFESSIONAL DOLL APPRAISAL
"This antique doll is a large example of a German papier-mâché shoulder head model, also referred to as a Sonneberg papier-mâché or composition doll, circa 1890. There were quite a few factories in Thuringia that made this type of doll, and if the labels or stamps are missing from the back shoulders, it’s difficult to give an attribution, but she appears to have been produced by the doll and toy factory of Adolf Wislizenus  of Waltershausen, a large company producing a wide variety of dolls which operated from 1851-1931. Most heads of this type have painted eyes, but this one has the very rare feature of glass inset paperweight eyes. From close examination of many photographs, it appears as though the head has been refinished and that the varnish has crackled and crazed. The antique cloth body is appropriate, but not the original factory body which would have had composition lower arms and legs with fancy molded boots and stockings.  The tears on the cloth ankles can be patched and mended. There is some deterioration to the leather of one of the hands. She has lovely antique clothing and shoes which contribute to making her a totally charming doll."

Dec. 20th, Jan Foulke Doll Appraisal:
This cute little 9-inch antique German child doll with bisque head and composition body was made by Johann Walther. The elaborate mark on the back of her head is actually a fancy 'W' for 'Walther.'In 1900 he started a factory for  dressed dolls  and in 1908, a porcelain factory, Walther & Co., that  later became Walther & Sohn. Both the doll and porcelain factories were in Oeslau near Coburg, Thuringia, Germany.  The porcelain factory specialized in all-bisque dolls, doll heads, baby doll heads and bathing dolls.  This was a time of great competition in the doll industry and companies were cutting costs by producing cheaper bodies, hence the “sawdust and glue” bodies and limbs , sometimes even with cardboard torsos. After all, they were covered by clothes, so if they weren't pretty it didn't really matter! Dolls like her in simple original factory dress and hat sold for 86 cents.  She has dark glass stationary eyes, a cute little wig and a nice outfit.  —Janice H. Foulke

"This 9-inch doll was made by the huge and world-renowned Armand Marseille doll factory in Koppelsdorf, Germany. The mold of this bisque head dates from 1894, and is one of A.M.s earliest models. A doll similar to this was offered in the 1895 Butler Bros. catalogue as part of a novelty assortment of dolls dressed as American Indians and Chinese, “all in characteristic national costumes.”  The head has a slight yellow tint to indicate an Oriental complexion. The matching five-piece composition body has red slippers with turned-up shoes to indicate an Oriental style. One shoe has some flaking and paint loss, but this is an easy repair for a doll restorer. The doll is all original with long black mohair wig and Chinese style costume including tunic, pants and jacket with hat. Of course, this is interesting to a collector because it is the German concept of a Chinese. German-made dolls with Oriental bisque heads are very desirable collectibles. This was made during a time in history when with the expansion of travel Europeans and Americans were becoming more attuned to the world and becoming more interested in native peoples. It would be a lovely addition to a collection of international dolls."

Jan Foulke appraisal, Aug. 19, 2008
Click to see enlarged doll photos, submitted for appraisal.

This 20-inch doll has a bisque head made by the large and prestigious Alt, Beck & Gottschalck porcelain factory in Ilmenau, Germany, Ca. 1885. She has the desirable features of a slightly turned shoulder head tipped downward, a solid dome head, beautiful facial decoration, and a closed mouth. She is on an excellent kid body with a few patches at her knee gussets. The body also has quite a few desirable features: rivet joints at the hips, and kid over wood upper arms, rivet-jointed elbows, perfect bisque lower arms, and all-kid legs. This is likely a Wagner &  Zetzsche body. W & Z bodies usually had a blue paper label under the head on top of the shoulder. W & Z bought heads from ABG and put them on their own bodies. As for her lovely clothing, I feel that it was made, perhaps in the 1940-1960 period of vintage fabrics. It is beautiful, but these dolls were designed as children and babies, and usually acquired adult clothing years later when they entered doll collections. Without any information on the ribbon, we can’t know why it was awarded. In fact, it might not even have been awarded to this doll. Sometimes the ribbons do get moved around, especially after 25 years. Since it was given at a Regional rather than a National convention, and the Regionals are very small compared to the Nationals, I am assuming that it was awarded as being a very lovely and desirable example of an antique doll with a turned shoulder head.

Jan Foulke Appraisal for Santa:
"This antique German doll is called Santa. This is a registered trademark name used by Hamburger & Co., a New York City producer, importer, and distributor of German dolls. The Santa trademarked line was produced from 1900-1910. Hamburger had the bisque doll heads made by the Simon & Halbig porcelain factory. Santa was one of the 36 dolls exhibited by Hamburger at the St. Louis Exposition in 1904; the exhibit won the Grand Prize. The Santa mold 1249 is distinguished by the triangular shading on her lower lip. Santa has pierced ears, sleeping eyes, molded eyebrows, and an open mouth with 4 upper teeth. The Santa is a popular and desirable mold to antique doll collectors.
"As for your 32-inch Santa doll, she has a very beautiful face. The tiny “wig pulls” on her forehead and the mold separation behind her ear, are minor flaws, and do not affect her value. Her mohair wig appears original, and is nice and full, though needs some styling. Her jointed composition body is in good condition, but has been repaired, particularly at the neck and thigh joints, and repainted. The hands have been replaced, and are too small for the size of the doll. Santa wears appropriate vintage clothing in very nice condition." -Jan Foulke

Bebe Tout en Bois
Bebe Tout en Bois
Jan Foulke Appraisal: This is an antique doll called a "Bebe Tout en Bois" (Doll all of Wood), Ca. 1901-1914. She is made completely of wood with a fully jointed body, and a socket head with inset glass eyes. The doll was made in Germany for the French trade, hence the French name. Several companies made these types of dolls. This one is possibly by the Schilling doll factory in Sonneberg, and may have the Schilling "winged angel" trademark on her body, so you should check it. It's usually on the back shoulder. Or she may have a sticker from another factory. The bodies usually have some flaking, as the paint was applied directly to the wood, which creates an unstable condition, and this flaw is acceptable, but the face should be perfect, as her appears to be so. In fact, it is particularly nice with a sweet expression. Her clothing is made from vintage fabrics, but is not original to her, though it appears to have been on her for quite some time.

This 17-inch doll is a 1960s interpretation of an antique French fashion lady or poupée peau. During the 1960s a large group of dolls came from France into the United States, many through the old New York Doll Hospital. These dolls were supposedly found in a warehouse and dated from pre-World War I, but subsequent research revealed that this story was not true. They were made in the 1960s by a French lady and her son, and they were aged to look older. There were both bisque and china fashions in the French style, some marked with F.G. in Scroll or F + G, and some such as yours with an earlier style face were unmarked.  Comparison with a genuine antique doll immediately reveals the differences: bisque too smooth, color too gray and orange, ears not well defined, piercing holes too small, glass eyes lacking depth and detail, wrong kind of pates, cheap coarse mohair wigs, new neck buttons, bodies not stiffly stuffed, and not carefully stitched, though some like yours were aged a carmel color.

"This is a 10-inch doll with antique German bisque shoulder head dating from the 1880s. Since the clothes are sewn on, we cannot check the back plate to see if there is a mark or mold number, so we cannot be sure of the maker, but it is of the type made by the Kling & Co. porcelain factory of Ohrdruf. The head is mounted on a cloth body with bisque lower arms and legs. His body may not be as old as the head, as the fabric looks newer, and that type of bisque leg is not usually found on old bodies. But the costume looks antique and original, so it would be strange to have an original costume with a replaced body, but we can't be sure from the photo. The lovely original Scotch outfit with the sporran is a plus even though there is some fraying, as some collectors specialize in dolls with national or regional costumes, and Scottish ones are real favorites."
