1920s BISQUE DOLL 7-Inch Bare Bottom Cutie in Knit Top! - (eBay item 310004737747 end time Dec-11-07 18:30:00 PST)
This vintage bisque doll is seven inches tall, blonde, wearing a slinky knit top and nothing else. She still has her arms. Her upper back is marked, "Made in Japan."
Her face is painted in a twenties style with the thin brows, big eyes with lashes painted top and bottom, a tiny bow mouth and her hair is bobbed. She's none too clean. I used a damp cloth on her and it did almost nothing. Perhaps you know how to give her a proper bath.
Her silky little pink knit top has a hole at the bottom front, a smaller hole on her right side and some irregularities at the back.
There's a flaw in the bisque at her ankle and a tiny hole in the bottom of her feet. She has no cracks, crazing or chips and her arms are held in place with a rubber band, I think. They move easily and stay put.
