The body of the doll is jointed with moveable arms and legs. It is wearing a white linen diaper that is safety-pinned. This doll looks very similar to Armand Marseille's 'My Dream Baby.' It has the marks A.M. Germany 351.1510k. Armand Marseille was a German doll manufacturer from the late 1800's to the early 1920's. He is a good representation of the golden age of doll making. His dolls were very popular in the U.S. and he produced so many that they still can be found in large quantities today. Marseille's family can be traced back to the French Huguenots who were banished from Russia and emigrated to Coburg, Germany. In the 1880's they started a porcelain factory, that led to the creation of dolls. He is known for a well crafted head with the touch of an arist accompanied by a crude, rough body.
