For the connoisseur collector who can spot a true gem from the crowd! This magical little character child called 'Mein neuer Liebling' will be a stand out investment in your collection. She was made by Kammer & Reinhardt around 1909.
Her bisque socket head is free from hairlines, damage or repairs and incised on the back K * R, Simon & Halbig, 117n.
Standing 18" tall with an inquisitive little girl face bound for trouble! Working amber brown glass sleep and flirting eyes with nice lid coverage. On her original composition and wooden ball-jointed body with slanted hips and above the knee leg jointing (known as the teen-aged body style) in very nice condition retaining original shiny finish with age related wear. She is strung well and holds a pose. All fingers and toes present. Darling original honey colored antique wig w/ pate.
Painted upper and lower lashes, brush-stroked/multi feathered eyebrows, dark eyeliner encircled around her almond shaped eye cuts, open mouth with shaded and outlined lips and 4 porcelain teeth. She has rosy blush and a gorgeous patina that gracefully comes with time. I want to point out her cheek rub ...adding to her little girl like charm and does not distract.
Wearing her all original antique childlike organza dress with flowered trim, silk sash and pink underdress. Antique under garments, pink socks and cream colored shoes. Her darling antique costume is Museum worthy in immaculate condition! I did not want to remove her clothing... it is perfect and I don't want to damage it, however I will if you want to see more of her body. Chair is for display and bunny is not included in the sale. He has to go back to the garden where she caught him.
You will love her! She's a doll :)
