German Minerva Tin Doll Head on Hand Sewn Body, 12"
Here is a very charming, hand crafted doll featuring a heavy tin "Minerva" head from Germany that has been lovingly hand painted. The doll features pink cloth sewn with red thread, black stockings, and what I think are plaster hands. The adorable doll is in good condition for its age, though does show signs of wear, such as damage to the hands, the beginning of some separation in the seams, and a small hole under the doll's left arm. Overall, this is a very nice example of early doll craftsmanship.
