Franz Schmidt baby, cabinet sized sweetheart, model 1295. This breather doll measures 11 inches, and the gown adds 4 inches in length. In remarkable condition, barely played with, dark brown sleep eyes, hair lashes as well as upper and lower painted lashes, wax intact, lovely quality bisque, and open nostrils. Original mohair wig, open mouth with two upper baby teeth. The body is excellent with only a small area of repaint on right shoulder, kind of an anomaly on a doll in this condition. The outer gown is old, but I cannot determine age, with lovely hand embroidery, looks like late 1910’s or early 1920’s. The underdress or chemise is cotton sateen. Then there is the little diaper, which I did not want to remove, thinking I may not get it pinned back properly. This particular model number, according to the Ciesliks, was made by Simon and Halbig for Franz Schmidt. Marked 1295 / F.S. & Co. / Germany / 28. There is a pencilled number near the head rim : 74. I am very fond of Franz Schmidt dolls and this one is exceptionally wonderful.
Shipping charge is approximate. I will refund overcharge. Please take a moment to read my terms of sale.
