All Bisque Doll Googly#2
Antique Reproduction Doll
All Bisque Doll Googly#2 – This sweet girl with a watermelon smile is a 6.5″ tall all bisque German Googly 9578, by Gebruder Heubach. She is an antique reproduction German doll on a toddler body. She also has cobalt blue glass eyes and a short blonde mohair wig. Her leather-lined joints are at the neck, shoulders, and hips.
The white ankle tie shoes, made of white leather, have a leather sole. They have a rayon tie and a tiny leather bow on the front with a gold flower in the center.
All the antique little pocket dolls are a delight to see. They were first reproduced in France in about 1860, then later produced in Germany, Japan, then later in the United States. These dolls are all bisque and their sizes range from a tiny one inch to fifteen inches tall. Doll Reference gives a good overview of these delightful little dolls. The reproduction dolls such as Twirp#1, copied from the antique dolls, are smaller than the originals due to shrinkage of the porcelain. Many of these little all-bisque dolls are available here.
