About this object

A bisque porcelain doll. The head is made of bisque porcelain with a body of white leather material stuffed and creased to create joints. The lower arms, hands, lower leg and feet are also made of porcelain, with boots painted on the feet. Bisque is an unglazed porcelain with a matte finish, giving it a realistic skin-like texture, tinted to offer a lifelike representation, with eyes made of glass. The doll is dressed in white cotton broderie anglaise blouse, skirt and pantaloons.
The doll was discovered in a house relocated to Cromwell from Manapouri. It is located in a box of appropriate size with a pink satin lace trimmed pillow and base liner. The box has written on the inside Japan Nipon 1910. The box was origianlly for a Stanley Drill and has been adapted to fit the doll.
