She is on the original early German wood and composition body with straight wrists, separate ball joints at shoulders and hips, all with fine original patina. Clothing consists of a simple but pretty antique white cotton and lace dress, antique undergarments, socks, and brown two tone leather shoes, an antique blond mohair wigs with bangs over plaster pate ( detached ) , and an antique pink felt bonnet with pink silk ribbon and feather decorations. She has a first place award ribbon from a 1987 Las Vegas show and well deserved! An exceptional example of this ever-popular model!………………US$ 3,100.

15 ½” ( 39cm ) tinted bisque ( light brown with a slight Siena hue ) German child doll with socket head incised “ HANDWERCK HALBIG Germany 0 ½ “ with brown glass sleep eyes, open mouth with slight smile and four upper teeth, molded and enameled furrowed eyebrows, tiny upper and lower lashes, pierced earlobes, and mounted to the original German fully jointed wood and composition body with good original patina which closely matches the color of the bisque head ( one finger missing from the knuckle ). The antique black human hair wig with side part is antique and appears to be most likely original as do the nice printed cotton dress with lace trim, undergarments, white knit stockings and brown canvas shoes. Fortunately the evenness of color throughout the head is remarkable as these dolls are so prone to cheek/color rubs and serious wig pulls as the painted surface is applied to the same as “white bisque “dolls so it leaves very little room for later abuse and/or improper firing or deficient firing methods which is so often the case with darker bisque surfaces ( other than the Gebruder Kuhnlenz black dolls which are pre-colored all the way through ). A charming doll is a desirable “ cabinet- size “!…………..RESERVED
