    This is an all-bisque baby doll that has moveable arms. The doll has a painted face with features including black eyes, pink cheeks, red lips, and light colored hair. These dolls are good examples of Japan's jump into the bisque doll market during World War I, when European exporters had stopped their shipments to the U.S. Japan who before exported under the name "Nippon" wanted to gain popularity with the American consumers and hence changed their name. Because patent laws were still lax, most of these dolls were direct copies of German bisque dolls and although most were of poorer quality, they were cheaper than even the most inexpensive German originals, making them accessible to the lot of American consumers.
