Help with antique doll

by Desi
(FL)





A woman I work for wants me to sell some of her antiques for her. One of the items she has is an antique doll. This is not my area of knowledge.

The doll is around 75 years old, has a wig, and her eyes close when you lay her down.

I have attached some photos with hopes that someone may know what kind of doll this is, and what it is worth. I could find no markings on it, not even on the back of the head.

Any help would be appreciated.

How tall is this doll? Any tag in the vintage clothes?

The doll seems to be of quality composition with a great mohair wig and clear eyes. The clothes and shoes & socks seem original to the doll. I would say she is mid 1930 to mid 1940 in origin and made by a good doll company of the time such as Madame Alexander, Ideal, R&B, and Vogue

It is hard to judge a sideways facial picture. No cracks or chips are showing in your pictures. Is there crazing (fine spiderweb lines) in the composition material?

She has many pluses going for her. Sorry I can't indentify her from the pictures.
