Barbie-Bild Lilli Clone

This doll brought back a flood of memories from the past. 
I remember back in the fifties and sixties, women would make 
bride dolls to be placed in the back window of the bridal car.
This doll is a Bild Lilli/Barbie clone.  
She has a U on the back of her neck which usually 
indicates the Uneeda Doll company.  In the sixties, Uneeda made a 
Barbie/Bild Lilli clone called Wendy. But from my research
this was a stock head which could be used on different dolls by different companies. 
She is 11 1/2 inches tall and has bumps on the tops of her feet (To keep her shoes on) 
I believe the dress may be handmade. It is removable. 
It has an eye and hook closure. It has a layer of stiff net under the gown. 
She has on a pair of panties.
Gown is yellowing.  Missing her shoes. 
Hair is in perfect condition (looks like it did when it came out of the box)
Veil is attached to the ponytail. No holes in the veil. 
Close up of face.

She was purchased at an Estate Sale over 
the weekend. 
Anyone have any more information please let me know.
