Carl Bergner three-faced doll

This doll dates from around 1905.  She is 34 cm tall.  Her bisque head has three different faces - sleeping, smiling and crying, the smiling and crying faces having fixed glass eyes.  The head is encased in a papier-mache hood with a metal ring at the top of the hood that turns the head around to display the different faces.  She is marked CB in a circle, which stands for Carl Bergner of Germany who specialised in multi-face dolls.  Her body is cloth with jointed composition arms and legs.  She wears a lovely long antique baby gown which is probably original.
