I have inherited an antique baby doll with a bisque (I think)

Customer Question

I have inherited an antique baby doll with a bisque (I think) head and a cloth body. The arms are also bisque (attached with the cloth body material - hands broken off and missing). The eyes are rattling around inside the head. The doll is dressed in a red and beige striped dress with buttons down the back, lace trim around the neck, at the wrist of the sleeves and down the front to waist with five tiny buttons between the two rows of lace. The cloth body is glued to the bisque head and is covering part of the marks. The numerals 370 are clear. Below those numerals is lettering only part of which is visible. The visible portion reads O D E with the letter C under the D. The C has an accent mark before it (') and is slightly off center to the right. The dolls hair is probably real.
