17" All Original Super RARE Simon & Halbig 1039 Flirty Eyed Mechanical Roulet & Descamps Walking Antique Doll for the French Trade!

THE MOST SPECTACULAR dolls often come in their all original costumes, with adorable cheeks (that just beg for kisses) and shining bright blue eyes that sparkle when they are cuddled. But it is rare to find all of this and more in a gorgeous Roulet & Descamps who walks and gives flirty eyes as she goes! She is an absolute dream with her bisque socket head on a jointed French composition and wood body with original finish and with a Roulet & Descamps metal key (when the Key is wound and she is held on a flat surface, she walks in a very realistic manner.) She has blue flirty eyes with painted lower lashes and string upper lashes, molded and stacked brows, open mouth with four upper teeth, pierced ears, lovely original brown human hair wig.

Dressed in a very sweet antique Pink dotted Swiss dress with lace trim, two tiered self ruffled hem with lace trim, wide antique pink brocade silk sash, full antique cotton slip with windowpane pattern and embroidered and scalloped hem and upper band, antique black net socks, antique brown leather high button boots (some wear and two buttons missing), lovely antique straw hat with black silk brim, purple velvet band, lilac ribbons and flower trim. A wonderful all antique presentation!
