A GOOD SIMON AND HALBIG MOULD NUMBER 1078

Here we have a really lovely German girl, made by Simon and Halbig, who were of course one of the producers of the finest German bisque headed dolls at that time.  They made heads for various other companies, but this one is their own specific production.  The rear of the head is fully marked as you can see in the photo below.  The bisque is fine and beautifully painted.  She has sleep brown eyes, open mouth with teeth - and even a little dimple in her chin!  She has her original jointed body, which is in really good condition other than minimal playwear and a little minor flaking to one upper arm. She measures about 14.5 inches tall.  She is such a perfect little size for standing on her own or sitting on the lap of a seated large Doll.  She has her original pate and the most amazing original blond wig.  Long mohair which is really silky.  It is just super and suits her so well.

She has a little woollen vest, cotton petticoat and drawers and a lovely blue and cream dress with lots of detail.  She retains her original socks (very frail but perfectly useable) and her original shoes with pleated rosettes on the toes. The soles of the shoes are missing.   She has pierced ears and her head is perfect with no cracks, chips or restoration.  The buyer will love her.   Do ask if you require further information.

 This small SIMON AND HALBIG 1078  is priced at ₤425.
