For auction-A 15 inch antique or very vintage composition and cloth back doll marked on the back of her neck AB with copyright logo Co. She seems to be a Honey Child type girl but with a flanged head rather than shoulder plate. I lived near Philadelphia and my research found a doll company here with these markings that made dolls like her. I found this doll at a local auction. She had damage on the top of her head and her forehead and 3 missing fingers on her right hand. I am not a professional restorer but I repaired the head and made 3 fingers for her. See pics. She has molded painted black hair with 3 short mohair tuffs. Her face is painted and she has side glancing painted eyes. I dressed her in an antique doll dress, a dotted red print. The dress is cotton with white trim at the sleeves and neckline. The front is pleated to the hem. Pleats need to be ironed. The button under her chin is red glass. There are 3 button closures in the back that close with a threaded loop but only one loop remains so she needs 2 more sewn in, The dress is not damaged and has no soiling or stains. She is wearing an old slip and bloomers, both off white cotton with a simple trim at the hem line. No damage to the under garments. The socks are ribbed cotton and shoes yellow front tie oil cloth. The repairs on her head are noticeable but the paint color matches well and she looks very cute. The fingers are not perfect but look better than no fingers. If you could find another compo doll with flange hands, they could be painted and replace but these look okay as a substitute. Her body is in good condition. Looks like it was stamped on her back but the ink is rubbed so I can not read it. I put three red yarn flowers on her little mohair tuffs. She looks adorable. Her feet are cloth.
Condition-good. Doll has repairs on her head, forehead, nose and 3 replaced fingers. Dress needs loops or button holes replaced in the back. Some paint rubs on the black hair paint.
Thank you so much for viewing my listing.
