I know it is over 100 years old. It is a China head doll?

I'm sure DollDock will be along shortly to help you. She knows far more than I do. But, yes, it is a "china head" doll. Most likely German, late 1800's. 

You may want to take several more pics of your doll for correct ID. The back of the head/neck, The body ( undressed) especially how the limbs are attached, and what the body is made from. Full size is probably needed too.  Also, if you think it has original shoes, a photo of that might be helpful as well.

Just from random experience will antique dolls, It seems that most of the German China heads are not worth a great deal. It's usually the French or German "Fashion dolls" that are most valued.

She looks to be in beautiful condition, hope you get good news!

Thank you for the input. I will take more pictures like you suggested above...

Yes, she is a china head doll.  These are difficult to id because most of them are unmarked.  There are books that can help you id the doll by a close study of the hairstyle.  If you do happen to find any markings on the shoulderplate or the body, please post and I will be glad to help further,
