Here's a little Nippon bisque doll, dressed in her party dress,  ready to step out for a night of dancing.  Painted features with rosy cheeks.  Her mohair hair is upswept on the top of her head, with a bandeau ribbon securing her hair. 

From the hair do I would date the doll from the later teens, maybe after WW1 or very early 1920's.  She wears painted white stockings edged in blue and flat Mary Jane shoes painted in gold. 

She also has an arm bracelet paint in gold on the upper part of her one arm.  (the paint is worn some on the bracelet),  She is marked Nippon on the back.  She wears an orange silk dress that is literally falling apart.  A simple dress, sleeveless with gathers around the neck.  Perhaps another dress could be made for her.

The 5-1/4" tall doll has movable arms and legs.  

Except where noted, I found the doll nice.
