One of the most desirable and beloved dolls by Simon Halbig is the 1249 SANTA. Here is a stunning example with gorgeous blue glass sleep eyes, an open mouth with 4 upper teeth, raised feathered eyebrows, delicate lashes painted above and below her sparkling eyes, pretty blushed cheeks, and a crisp dimple in her chin.
She is on her original composition and wood ball jointed body, with lovely hands and feet that still have tiny detail lines around her nails. Her long golden blonde human hair wig complements her face color, and her pierced ears are adorned with golden bead earrings. Her blue eyes seem to sparkle. She is beautifully dressed in a vintage green and white check dress, pretty slip, and pretty blonde human hair wig .Her white leather shoes with buckles look original. At 24" tall, she has a wonderful presence!

Excellent. The beautiful pale bisque has no hairlines, chips or restoration. Her features are beautiful and delicately painted. The original body is great, with good stringing, only minor wear and the original finish. (see pictures) Her cute vintage green and white check is excellent and presents beautifully. This darling SANTA has a beautiful presence. Don't miss her, because she is exceptional.
