and the German dictionary pages I've copied and used on my tags? Yes, Mary Ann gifted those to me as WELL!
And if you are drawn to these as much as I have been, the collaged art piece as well as the tags shown, will be listed in my Etsy Shop by the weekend. I will be listing more that I am currently working on, as well.
If you would like to receive notice on their arrival at the shop, send me your e-mail address and I will be sure to let you know!
Here's a little history on the Biedermeier doll:
About the earliest type of china head is the "Biedermeier" which was intended to have a wig of soft child-hair or mohair. It is smooth without a molded headdress, and has a black tonsurelike spot about the size of a half dollar at the top, to which the wig was fastened.
This doll, which dates to the Biedermeier period. 1820 to 1830, is first pictured in Max von Boehn's Dolls and Puppets. Most German china dolls have black hair and blue eyes, though some have blonde hair, and a few of the black-haired dolls have brown eyes. The brown-eyed china doll is rather rare and much sought after by collectors.
