What a gorgeous face this completely charming and very large 31" Handwerck 109 has! She is one of the nicest and prettiest examples you will see of this desirable mold number made by Heinrich Handwerck. This big beauty has beautiful brown glass eyes they are set but all the original workings are there in the head (see pic), expert painting of lovely lashes and feathered brows. She has an open outlined mouth with teeth and beautiful bisque. Her coloring and molding is exceptional with crisp modeling and a defined nose. She has pierced ears, and lovely human hair wig.
She is marked 109 15 1/2X HANDWERCK Germany 6 1/2. There are no hairlines or repairs to this pretty girl. This big girl is on a beautiful heavy fully jointed composition body with it's original finish. There is some minor scuffing, small split on right lower arm - totally stable and on right upper leg joint - cosmetic only.
She is wearing a antique white dress. She has antique and vintage underwear and vintage socks and shoes.
This is one of the most beautiful examples of the lovely Handwerck 109 mold number. She will stand out in any collection for the really fine doll she is! c. 1890
