Description of Handwerck Doll for Sale

This is a stunning example of an antique bisque head doll made in Germany by Heinrich Handwerck. The doll is their 109 mold and is 32 inches tall. The doll was made in the late 1890's to early 1900's. The head for this doll was fired by Simon Halbig based on a design master from Heinrich Handwerck. In the early 1900's Simon Halbig started adding their name to the heads they fired for Heinrich Handwerk. The fact that it is missing from this head confirms the early date for this doll. 

The doll is wearing a long baby's christening gown. The gown is antique and is very well made of the finest material. The bottom 4-6 inches of the gown has an overall yellow discoloration probably from water contact. The fabric is sound and it is likely a gentle cleaning will remove the discoloration and brighten up the entire gown. There are also some small dark rust stains on the bottom of the gown. I can't guarantee these will wash out. She is wearing a new synthetic wig. She has a pair of antique French leather shoes with silk rosettes and vintage replacement crocheted socks. The shoes are in good condition with no splits. 

MARK
