Diminutive 12″ ( 31 cm ) bisque head boy by Simon & Halbig ( made for Dressel ) incised  ” 1498 4 “ with molded and painted hair, inset stationary blue glass eyes, open/closed mouth, with upper and lower painted lashes and multi-stroke brows. He is mounted to a good quality German fully articulated pink wood and composition body with original finish and is dressed in white linen trousers and a cranberry and white crocheted sweater with a ” wintry ” design, as well as antique black leather shoes. The 1498 by S&H is the exact same mold as the much beloved ” 1488 ” although the ” 1488 ” has a cut head with a wig and the ” 1498 ” molded hair mandating that it be represented as a boy. a rare little doll and seldom found in this tiny size. US$ 950.

Tiny ( 9”, 23 cm ) but oh so rarely ( if ever ) found is this charming example of the Gebruder Heubach boy incised “ 8818 Heubach ( in a square logo ) II Germany “ . He has a cut head with an original blond bobbed mohair wig, intaglio painted eyes in the palest of blue and “looking upward “, closed mouth with dimple in chin , big stuck-out ears, with a solemn , almost bewildered expression. He is mounted on a fully articulated German wood and composition body, and is costumed in a two piece pale blue cotton suit with belt at waist and an oversized white cotton and lace trimmed collar in a “ Little Lord Fauntleroy” manner. The shoes are antique black canvas with shoestring ties, and the knee length white stockings well made. He does have the faintest of hairlines on back of head starting at the crown and descending downward to mid -center but is not seen with wig in place and the minor damage is well reflected in the price of this seldom found boy!….US$ 695.
