23 William Goebel 45 Character Boy RARE Mark Antique German Bisque Doll B5
Made in Germany c. Bisque Head / Composition Body. Marked:WG (stylized) Made in Germany 45. This Dapper Dan is just adorable! He is a 23 William Goebel character child made in Germany c. Of special interest is the unusual, transitional mark. His head is incised “45” and the mold is nearly identical to their well-known “B5″ mold (which often had no Goebel insignia at all) with its signature happy, innocent look and two upper teeth. The history of Goebel’s marking is interesting. Their earliest bisque doll heads (1880s) were simply marked with a triangle and crescent moon. At the turn of the century, they began using various forms of “W” and “G” intertwined — which is where this doll’s mark comes in, and it’s one of their rarest — until they finally settled on the best-known mark with a wide “W” and a “G” with a crown at the top. This cheerful boy is in great condition with superb face painting that includes multi-stroke brows; accented lips, eye corners, and nostrils; as well as nice cheek blush. The tip of his tongue is visible inside his mouth, and he has the distinctive Goebel two upper teeth. He has a spotless stamped composition ball-jointed body marked Made in Germany. He is fabulously dressed in a three-piece suit consisting of brown wool jacket and trousers, with a brocade vest. Under that, he has a lace-trimmed button-up shirt and nice two-piece undergarments. His matching hat and antique red leather button-up shoes complete the outfit. And let’s not forget the spectacles and brooch, which make him look so scholarly! Not all dolls exude this much personality, but he sure does! Let his smile chase away the winter blues! NOTE: Photo props not included: FRAMED HAND-PAINTED ANTIQUE LITHOGRAPH (though I do have it for sale separately if you are interested). Beautiful antique condition — from a non-smoking environment. No issues found with the bisque after careful examination. The composition body is in excellent condition, with good stringing and no noteworthy issues. IMPORTANT: Besides the noteworthy issues mentioned above, EXPECT any antique doll (bisque/composition/leather/china/wood) to ALSO have: (1) SIGNS OF AGE – for example: toned/crazed/chipped composition, minor wig pulls, loss of “hair” lashes on bisque heads, not-so-tight stringing, etc. (2) MINOR CONSERVATION WORK by previous owners/collectors – for example: reset eyes in most cases! , repairs to wig, repairs to clothing, touch-ups on composition/finish/paint, etc. Any MAJOR issues — hairline crack, total repaint, etc. – would be itemized above, but these normal age/conservation details are not. They are to be expected. I’LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. Provided it’s rated the same (or faster) than the service you chose. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, or U. Message me to see whether there may be a cheaper alternative using Priority Post — depending on the size and value of your parcel. And provided the items can travel safely in the same box. WHAT, NOTHING TO COMBINE! ? (opens in a separate window/tab)… Where you’ll find more top-quality antiques/collectibles/artwork/dolls/and more! Significantly not as described: A. Flaw or discrepancy vs. What was stated in the listing. As often happens, it’s the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they’re doing. And then, when they realize they’ve ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective. BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of. But these are antique and vintage dolls — so, please understand that they won’t be in brand-new condition. There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body. Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls. IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION. This item is in the category “Dolls & Bears\Dolls, Clothing & Accessories\Dolls & Doll Playsets”.
