This belonged to my grandmother born 1915. It is 5 inches, all bisque, painted face and eyes...eyes are amazing, gray field then a black dot then a single white dot in the middle.
Painted arms and legs, and even black shoes and white socks. Jointed at neck, single jointed arms and legs, with elastic. But the rare thing is the body is gray and rougher in texture than the rest.
I have not seen any pictures like this. The Hair appears to be real and is glued on with the hat. And the dress is sowed on tight and fabric glued together in back.
I tried to look as far up the back without damaging the dress but could not see any markings.
Do you have any ideas who she is?
