This one is so very hard for me to let go! A wonderful petite cabinet sized Simon Halbig 1009 with great spiral blue eyes!
She is approx. 11" tall. Super bisque head with great coloring! Her spiral blue eyes are set and surrounded by loads of finely painted eyelashes. They are gorgeous! Multi stroke brown eyebrows highlight her eyes. Open mouth with four tiny teeth. A tiny brown beauty mark on her right cheek. Pierced ears with antique earrings. Head has been lit and black-lit and there is no damage or restoration to the head. Back of head is incised "S & H 1009" with "DEP" below. She is an early Simon Halbig.
Her body is original to her and retains much of the original finish. Straight wrists. The usual finish wear consistent with antique composition and wood doll bodies, please see pictures for details. Nicely strung.
She is wearing a gorgeous ensemble! Her dress is either antique or made of antique fabrics. I think it is antique, but cannot guarantee it was not made by an artisan as they can make them look they are antique. Regardless, it is wonderful and looks great on her! Cream net lace with silk blue ribbon trim and tiny little ribbon flowers. So delicate looking! Over this she is wearing a real fur coat, probably vintage and wonderful antique flannel hat. So, she can be displayed in her dress for spring/summer apparel and then add her coat for fall and winter!
So lovely, she is precious!
