Bisque head and hands, probably modern cloth body/dress

This is my late wife's doll she had as a child in the 1950s. I know absolutely nothing about it besides that.


It has what appears to be a bisque head with curly human hair. It has some very thin cracks that look to be a result of the firing process and not due to impact damage.

The face is adult and painted to look as if it's heavily made up with pure white makeup. The finish is matte. The hands are also bisque, much smoother finish, a relatively dark red with a golden wash/patina on the backs.

The body is stuffed with cloth and looks quite modern. The choker around the neck was closed with what looked like glue and was relatively easy to peel apart. There are no marks that I can see on the head or hands.

The head is about 3-1/2" tall and the entire doll is 22" from head to toe.
