Stunningly beautiful Simon and Halbig child with head incised  " S&H 1279 DEP Germany 14 1/2 " with open mouth and four upper teeth, protruding full upper lip, large brown glass sleep eyes, pierced earlobes, deep dimples in cheeks and chin, painted upper and lower lashes and dramatic enameled and modeled thick multi-stroke eyebrows, mounted to the original fully articulated German wood and composition body with original yellowy glossy patina. She is wonderfully presented with a lush and full antique brown human hair wig with side part, a  " Christmas red " antique pleated cotton dress, an antique red wool coat with black velvet sleeve and collar trim, an antique child’s black bonnet with velvet ribbon which tie under the chin, and antique brown leather side button children’s shoes. Although we have listed her in the more traditional " German Bisque " category she also must qualify as one of the earliest inceptions of the forthcoming " character " series as she is obviously not just a pretty typical " dolly face " and certainly stands out in her field as exceptional and innovative of those produced at that time in history. A real bargain for a quality doll at only ....... US$2,450.
