So much personality in one little body with the perfect amount of age and wear--chipped paint. stains all speaking of a past life. This little girl is ready and waiting to be adopted into a loving home. Restoration would not be difficult for the serious doll collector.
Metal headed dolls were made to outlast other dolls and thought to be more durable. The heads were often sold separately and then attached to a cloth body, so it's not unusual for bodies to vary quite a bit. Whoever created this Minerva's body did quite a nice job of making her solid and lasting.
These metal head dolls were manufactured 1894 through 1925 and perhaps a little longer. Registered trademark in the U.S. by A. Vischer & Co. and in Germany by Buschow & Beck.
