BIng Art 11" Painted Face Cloth Doll Germany 1920s-on - image 1 of 16

Bing Art Doll is an 11" jointed cloth girl doll with an expressively painted cloth face that was manufactured by the Bing Brothers in Nuremberg, Germany, circa 1921-1932. She is unmarked. Her face is painted sensitively with wispy brown brows, soulful dark eyes highlighted with shadow and brown liner, a full pouty red mouth, broad rosy cheeks, and the hint of a double chin. Her original blonde mohair wig is braided and tied with faded ribbons. Darkened and stained in areas from age or perhaps transfer from her original outfit, Bing Art Doll's jointed cloth body still remains sturdy, though two tiny holes mar the back of her right arm. Her face may also need a gentle dusting. She has been redressed appropriately in a lovely early provincial costume, coordinating hat, and undergarments. Her black woolen skirt with its velvet trim along the hemline sustains a tear on its left backside, while her original black fabric shoes and stockings are suffer a few holes and foxing. Bing Art Doll is an appealing and early child doll created in the "flavor" of the early Kathe Kruse dolls. No bad odors--
