Description of Toddler Doll for Sale
This is the ultimate expression of a cute antique German character face bisque head toddler doll. She is a Kammer Reinhardt number 122 and is 16 inches tall and was made in the early 1900's. She was made in Germany and sold by Kammer Reinhardt using heads made for them by Simon Halbig. Most Kammer Reinhardt dolls were made using heads they contracted Simon Halbig to make resulting in the dual markings. Sometimes this doll is listed as a Simon Halbig doll because they made the head. Since this head was made exclusively for Kammer Reinhardt it is more appropriate to list it as a Kammer Reinhardt doll.
This doll is on the less commonly seen ball jointed slant hip toddler body. She has wonderful flirty sleep eyes and a treble tongue. This toddler is wearing her original antique outfit consisting of a dress with matching bonnet, a full slip with matching bloomers. The antique outfit is topped off with knit socks and a pair of over the top oilcloth shoes with pompoms. The shoes are so detailed that they even have tiny aglets on the ends of the laces. Under the cute bonnet she has a vintage replacement human hair wig full of curls.
