1950s German doll???

(Whitstable UK)

My elderly grandmother gave me a doll for my baby girl to have when she is older. She has told me that she was given it before my father was born by her German sister-in-law thinking the baby she was going to have was to be a girl.

Well since she had a boy the doll has been sitting in a drawer for the last 50 odd years.

It has no markings that I can see and is made of a solid material, not being a doll collector myself I have no clue to her identity.

She has elastic holding her limbs together and is wearing a pretty lacey skirt with ribbons tied around the shoulders and waist.

Does anyone have an idea of who she is? Thanks Kate x

You didn't list the height of the doll but she does look small. What year was your father born? Was the doll new then?

Most German all bisque dolls had strung arms and legs and the dolls from Japan had the arms strung but frozen legs. Most dolls from Japan were marked but some only had paper labels on their stomach which could be removed.

I did find a similar doll at eBay auction 200586150820. That doll is marked with a triangle inside a circle. Hopefully someone will remember what company is associated with that mark. Diane
