An exceptionally beautiful German parian is this one from the Conta & Boehme firm. Fine features include a perfect shoulderhead with amazingly sharp molded details, a gorgeous face overall that includes blue-painted eyes, and an elegant, molded, blonde hairstyle that features a decorated band with gilded highlights.
On a stuffed cloth body that features long bisque arms and nicely modeled legs that wear pink painted boots, this serene lady wears a lovely costume of blue silk that has been overlaid with organdy, creating a lighter than air, billowy effect. Coordinating ribbons, bows and tape trim add the perfect decoration.
A superb, cabinet ready parian example - who could ask for more?

For the advanced parian collector, we have something you will definitely appreciate in the form of a fabulous lady wearing a molded hat. The size is superb at 9 3/8" and the molded details are unsurpassable.
Features include a perfect shoulderhead with gorgeous painting of the eyes, brows, mouth, and hair ornaments. Details upon the head include the molded hat (tiniest flake at edge) featuring a luxurious molded plume with lavender luster decoration.
Upon what is surely her original cloth body, it is fitted with lovely bisque arms with cupped hands, and flat feet that "wear" painted ankle boots. Shimmering satin forms the basis of the lovely ensemble, with its tape and black lace trimmings, while antique undergarments complete the presentation.

We are constantly amazed by the variety of amazing hairstyles that can be found on nineteenth-century German parian dolls, and this elegant lady is no exception – her hairdo is a work of art. Further details include a perfect bisque shoulderhead with pale coloring, softly executed features that resemble a watercolor painting, and the blonde crowning glory that includes ringlets and a molded ribbon and bow in back.
On a stuffed cloth body that is fitted with china limbs in the form of long arms with cupped hands, and legs (repairs) with flat feet, she wears a gorgeous evening ensemble in midnight blue and striped silk which creates a successful contrast. Cream lace and silken rope are the perfect accents.
Parian collectors, here is yet another stunning variation to add to your collection!

A fabulous French papier-mache in all original presentation should be on every early doll collectors list. This amazing example could be the one for you!
Features, besides her infinite charm, include an especially detailed hairstyle with crimping, braids and a bun, and inset glass pupil-less eyes. On a classic leather body showing normal wear and scattered patching, the regional costume of largely red wool includes a lovely border of blue floral silk at the hem, a vest of royal blue silk, a cotton wrap at the shoulders, a cream cotton apron, and a lace cap. She wears original under things and simple leather shoes upon her feet.
Simply put, a very pleasing example.

Measures: 19 1/2" tall


Since we all know time flies, you will have your doll at home in your arms in no time at all!
