20 ESTATE BELTON/SONNEBERG Bisque Closed Mouth Doll Marked 14 C. This rare doll is out of an estate, and is in amazing condition for the age with no damage or repairs - little wear. Her hands have been repainted, and there appears to have been a small ring of paper mache into which the neck was secured. Also, there is some flaking on the edge of her left eyeball (the bisque is perfect).
She is the only Belton that I have had in 47 years of dealing in dolls & antiques, and in the doll books - they are identified as being "French" or "German". Her wig is made of human hair, and her clothing is vintage - but not original to her (see pics).This doll would make an amazing addition to a collection, or a fabulous gift (if you hurry). Try to find this one again.
