This full figure pincushion doll poses prettily in her polka-dot bathing suit. Of good china, she is 3.25 inches tall and 2.75 inches long. Her base, with four sew holes, is faintly incised on right side “Germany” and on left what appears to read “15213.”
She is by the German firm of Carl Schneider Erban and is pictured in its old catalogues. This little lass was also offered without the base, either in spotted swimwear or au naturel. But who is the rather distressed damsel on the right, also adorned in dots?
She appears to be the bathing-suited version of this nervous nude warding off the little crab climbing her calf, who has appeared previously in this blog.
The catalogue shows a nude version of this crabby cutie without the base. Considering that the swimsuits are simply painted on, Schneider could easily offer these lissome lasses either dotted and dotless.
