18 1/4" tall Antique Simon Halbig German doll on a marked Crying body with the original pull strings still intact! Red and green wood pull strings. She cries when you pull the strings. I have only seen these on French bodies, so this is unusual! No hairlines, breaks or repairs to the body or head. I see the brown glass eyes are not sleep eyes, so, those may have been set at sometime in the past. I had to go through the cardboard pate to check the inside of the head. It is wax over glue and really hard to get inside the head. Original paint on the body and it is excellent condition with red lines on fingers and toes! I see no repairs or damage on the body. She has pierced ears and earrings in that someone added to go with her dress. Shoes are black oilcloth with bows on them and is wearing brown socks and the dress and bonnet are in matching taffeta type fabric. Stand is included! Neck is a little loose, and will need stringing in the future.
