Handwerck 28" Doll 119 Bisque Head w/ Stamped Composition Body

A beautiful antique child doll with bisque socket head standing 28" tall with fixed brown eyes, pierced ears and matching golden brown curly hair framing the prettiest creamy bisque face with an open mouth showing four teeth. She rests upon a fully jointed composition body. Head is marked 119-13 Handwerck Germany 5, the 119 mold is not as often seen and therefore a more sought after doll she also rests on her original stamped ball joint composition body.
