The slightly larger doll is 16" and is an unmarked bisque socket head on a separate bisque shoulder plate with light pale blue eyes, pierced ears and smiling mouth with highlighted lips. Although not specifically identified, her characteristics reminds one of an 1880's Jumeau. She is on a somewhat unconventional white kid body with sewn joints at elbows, shoulders, hips and knees, and individually delineated fingers that are not separated. One might assume that the body is later than the doll but nevertheless, it is well made. The slightly smaller doll, 15" tall, is a smiling bisque shoulder head doll with solid bisque rounded dome, blue glass eyes on a leather body with gusset joints at hips and elbows with mitten-style hands and sewn joints at the knee. Although French by appearance, she is arguable of German manufacture, but unmarked. She has a black silk dress with lace panel in front, black lace gloves and a cameo miniature on her bodice. A repair is needed at the right knee of the 16" doll, easily done with glue or a stitch. Condition: (Good). Dimensions: Largest: 16" T.
