Antique 1890s German Minerva #1 Doll Tin Head Sawdust Body Leather Feet 12
German Minerva #1 Doll Tin Head Sawdust Body Leather Feet 12. Early Minerva doll, full tin head, painted eyes (not glass) and what appears to be an original dress. She is filled with sawdust and has leather boots/feet. She is wearing a dress with petticoats, and even pantaloons! She is marked minerva on the front and only a single number 1 in the back of the metal part. It is not marked Germany like later dolls. The dress has a snap on the back. This could have been added later in the dolls life, but snaps were invented in 1885, so it could be original. As far as the markings, the US Government required country of origin to be marked on imported products after 1891, so it was either made in the US (Sears used to market these) or it was made before 1891. While tin head dolls go back to the 1860s, I was only able to find information for Minerva dolls dating back to 1894. Obviously the dress is in the condition you’d expect. We didn’t bother trying to restore it, because we didn’t want to risk what could happen to the dress since it is in such delicate condition. We have wrapped her in paper and plastic over that to prevent damage. Please see all images and do let us know if you have any questions.
