“Jenny doll” porcelain head & hands

About 18-19” in height. Has been passed down through family. Body seems to have been stuffed with what looks like sawdust. Porcelain is in very good condition & however the rest of the body has wear & tear from age & elements. Was told it was originally my Grandmothers & she was born in 1908. I took the doll when my Mother passed away. She also has 3 custom made dresses.

Fair Market Value:

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. It is a lovely antique doll. Such antique bisque headed dolls are being offered at auction on a regular basis. I presume your doll is with a bisque shoulderhead, the way the face is moulded looks as if it comes from the German doll factory Kling. This type of doll with shoulderhead and moulded painted hair and face was typical for that particular factory. The body made of leather and legs and arms of bisque are also typical of this type of woman-doll. It was made around 1880-1890. Collectors today are very concerned that the head is in mint condition meaning that there must be no chips, hairlines or cracks in the head and that the body and underarms are in very good condition too. If there are original clothes to go with the doll it usually increases the price. The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online old toys auction, where I believe the doll has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the lovely doll. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help. Thank you
