Really Pretty and ALL-ORIGINAL 14" Simon & Halbig Character Doll 1009, Circa Late 1800's-early 1900's. Great example of a Hard to find mold number. Pristine doll with bisque socket head, large brilliant blue glass paperweight eyes, painted lashes and feather brush-stroked brows. She has so much PERSONALITY and her dimpled chin is so cute! Her beautiful coloring includes rosy cheeks, accented nostrils and outlined lips. She has an open mouth with 4 porcelain teeth, pierced ears (unusual for a German doll) and her original brunette mohair wig with coiled braids. Her crisp, antique cotton blue & white checked dress is LIKE NEW and has a wide collar with brettles trimmed in lace. She wears a gorgeous antique slip with elaborate eyelet trim that peaks out from beneath her dress. She also has a chemise top and bloomers. Even her antique brown German leather shoes and socks are hers originally. She looks like she just came out of the factory where she was made! This is a sweet, sweet doll and will make a fine addition to any collection. She is Museum Quality with a very expressive character face. She is even better in person-you will love her!!
*I will be happy to do up to a 4 month layaway on this sweet Character!
Marks: On Head - S 5 H 1009 DEP Germany
Condition: Generally Excellent. Fine quality bisque with soft coloring. Perfect bisque head (No Hairlines, Cracks, Chips or Restoration) There is a smooth indentation at her crown rim that was created by an air bubble when she was made - it is NOT A CHIP and not considered damage (It is finished). Also, a very light scuffing of the bisque at the right side of her face, very hard to see (so minute, it is not showing up with the camera-but thought I'd mention). She has her original wooden fully-jointed body with original finish (some normal wear). *She was a Theriaults Gold Horse Doll bought out of a famous collection.
