Marked on back of head "SH", "PB" inside a star outline and "1923 1, Germany". The doll will need to be restrung as the two top arms are loose and dangling from the body. Minimal surface wear to the doll's body from light use; spot sections of the black painted color show shade discoloration/fading and paint rubbing shows on the interior side of the upper arm (attaches to shoulder socket) on both arms (picture). The two interior fingers on the right hand were previously repaired (picture). The painted layer above the brown eyeball that shows when the doll is "sleeping" is no longer present.
Age to the original wig; tiny strands of hair will fall if the hair is touched with a heavy hand. Doll Black_doll 1L #2stk12 4L (BLR).
