DOLLS PRICE GUIDE:  Antique Dolls

GERMAN ALL-BISQUE BATHING BEAUTY

DOLL:  German All-Bisque Bathing Beauty.

SIZE:   3" seated

MARKS:  none

DATE OF PRODUCTION:  circa 1920

CHARACTERISTICS OF DOLL:  Doll is a one-piece figure of an adult nude woman.  Doll has painted facial features, pink slippers (not visible) and a brunette mohair wig.  The outfit is all-original and consists of 1930s style Turkish harem-style fashion clothing with a green turban and beaded earrings.

PRICE: Doll in perfect condition, $500 to $700; with two fingers broken on bent arm (as this doll has) $300 at auction.  Some dolls made in similar style have been found stamped "Bavaria," and others have accessories such as mirror and parrots.  Dolls holding accessories have higher values.

COMMENTS:  Beautifully modeled doll, unusual to find with original costume.

MARKET TREND: The glut of doll supply on eBay has caused lesser-models of bathing beauty dolls to go down in price--many examples can be found in the $75-$200 range.  However, more unusual models, especially those with original clothing, fine painting, or unusual modelling will bring considerably more.
