Description of Doll for Sale

I have a wonderful antique Parian Head Dresden Gent Parian head made in Germany by C.F. Kling & Co.  It is a fantastic example of a German Parian head made circa 1890 - 1910s. The antique Parian head is in perfect condition with some wear to the gold trim on the molded shirt and tie.  There is also some minor wear to the back of the painted hair. The Parian head is on an antique hair stuffed cloth body that is most likely not original to the Parian head.  The original factory body for this doll would have usually been taller and thinner than this body.  The Parian head is 5 inches tall. 


As it is typically seen in most early German Parian heads there are no marks on the Parian head.  The C.F. Kling & Co. attribution was arrived at based on investigations in several resource books in my library. 

Condition of Doll for Sale


The Parian head is perfect with no chips, cracks or repairs..  There is some wear to the gold painting on the molded shirt collar and tie.  There is also some wear to the hair on the back of the head.  (see close-ups in the slide show).  There is also a small bubble in the porcelain of the hair near the ear.  This is a flaw from the Kling factory. 

This is an antique doll that will have some wear and imperfections expected in an antique or vintage doll.  I make every effort to describe all significant flaws in my descriptions and show them in the pictures.  Please read the description fully and examine all the pictures to be sure you understand the condition of the doll.  The pictures can be enlarged to show the doll in great detail.  If you have any questions or would like any additional information on this doll please email me and I will be glad to answer your question.  California residents are responsible for California Sales tax in addition to the purchase price shown.
