SIMON HALBIG 20" 1159 LADY DOLL – ANTIQUE GERMAN DOLL FROM AROUND 1894
This very pretty 1159 Simon Halbig lady doll measures 20 inches. The back of her head is incised 1159 – S & H- DEP – 7 – Germany.
She is on a composition ball jointed body that is in good condition. Her bisque head has no chips, cracks or hairlines. She does have pierced ears with a small chip in ear hole on left side. Her eyes are blue sleep and all eye paint is present. She has human hair lashes, an open mouth.
Her silk dress is original and in "melting condition". I have not removed her top for pictures due to delicate condition of her silk two piece dress. Her undergarments consist of a camisole, pantaloons and half slip. Her shoes may be original, the stockings have been replaced. There is a pin present at neckline with an antique looking picture of a woman. Her wig is mohair but is new and the pate is replaced. Her coloring is mint without any rubs or scratches.
This is definitely a very pretty 1159 sample from Simon and Halbig.
