An all original doll is a wonderful find, indeed. Such is the case with the handsome German Holz Masse example. Details include a perfect papier-mache shoulderhead that features delicate coloring, fine painting of facial features, brilliant blue paperweight eyes, and her original human hair wig styled in soft curls. On a stuffed cloth body with leather arms, and legs that feature built-in striped stockings and leather boots, she wears her original wool dress that features blue edging and lace accents. A marvelous woven straw bourrelet, with coordinating blue silk accents, crowns her sweet head.

Details of this petite mechanical marvel include a perfect bisque head with blue glass eyes, his original wig styled in the 18th century manner, and an all original silken costume that denotes the gentleman as a marquis.

Standing 11-1/2" overall, the workmanship in this wax masterpiece is remarkable and features a vegetable vendor of perhaps, Central American descent, on her way to the marketplace. With a poured wax head (flattening to nose) with inset glass eyes, the details are incredible, such as cottons dipped in wax and decorated with wax stripes in a painted manner. The basket upon her back is loaded with fresh vegetables, which include wax heads of lettuce, turnips, peppers and carrots all enhanced by wax-dipped paper leaves.
Old, yellowed newspaper tucked into the bottom of the basket is in American English, leading us to believe the piece in American made, perhaps created early in the twentieth century.

Thank you, R

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