"Carrie's Doll"

My mother (98 yrs) gave me her mother's doll recently. She is 27" tall with blue sleep eyes, open mouth with teeth, pierced ears with drop pearl earrings and a tiny dimple on her chin.

The markings on her neck are "14, Germany, 99, DEP, HANDWERCK, 5 1/2". I think her clothes are original. She is dressed as a young child. Her hair is a blond wig with shoulder length finger curls and she is wearing a wide brimmed straw has with a satin ribbon tied under her chin.

She has a hard body with flexible joints. She visited a doll hospital many years ago and they didn't clean her hands because they were afraid the fingers might break.

I have lovely photos of her.
