This doll is a reproduction of a small all porcelain Bru.  She is 7 inches tall and has an all porcelain body.  The dress is an adaptation of a pattern from the book by Rose Marie Ionker.  The dress techniques in this book make costuming little dolls much more manageable. The dress is batiste, and I did the embroidery by hand. This doll was fairly common and there are variations and different heads on this body, which is common with small dolls. The Bru head would probably not have been common, whereas heads by Kestner were usually on  this doll.
