Antique Reproduction Doll
Mignonette Googly 323AM Doll#2- This sweet girl is an 8″ tall all bisque 323 A.M. antique reproduction doll on a well-shaped toddler body. This character doll has a closed smiling mouth and fine painted lashes. She also has brown glass eyes and a short brown 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. Off white ribbed, rayon socks are included with the shoes.
All the antique little pocket dolls are such 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 this googly, 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.
