Beautiful and rare open mouth version of the Kammer and Reinhardt ” Mein Liebling ” incised ” K&*R Simon and Halbig 117 70 “,  27 1/2″ ( 70 cm ) tall, with brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, multi-stroke lashes, pointy nose, open mouth with four upper porcelain teeth, pouty upper lip, and deep dimple in the chin. She is the original pinkish-yellowy wood and composition fully jointed body with excellent original  finish, and wears a fantastic original mousy blond mohair wig with side bangs with two short braids tied with red silk ribbons, a two piece blue and white sailor dress with red neck tie , antique underwear, antique black knit socks and antique black leather shoes and a nice straw hat with cloth flowers.  This mold is actually quite rare, much more so than the closed mouth 117’s, and is much earlier and has totally different facial modeling than the more common seen ” 117n’s ” that are primarily from the 1920’s, often with flirty eyes on the so-called ” teenage ” or  ” high knee ” bodies. A beautiful mostly original doll the that would be a nice ” comparison companion ” for your closed mouth 117!. US$ 2,450.

HUGE 32″ (81 cm) character, perhaps the largest model we have seen on this mold, with head incised “1488 Simon & Halbig 15” with blue glass sleeping eyes, an open/closed mouth with wide space between the lips but no molded teeth, on a near mint German wood and composition body which is fully articulated. She wears a wonderful bobbed but very curly antique light brown mohair wig, a very nice antique silk cotton and lace dress with silk ribbon insertions, old undergarments, socks and white leather shoes, as well as peachy and turquoise silk cloche bonnet with floral silk florets. The bisque quality is also especially nice with even facial coloring, well painted eyebrows and upper and lower lashes. Considering the rarity of this doll and impressive size she is quite a bargain at US$ 3,950.00
