Here is a large antique German baby doll with bisque head and flirting eyes, made by Kämmer & Reinhardt / Simon & Halbig around 1914 and quite famous; the 126 head mold is also called “Mein Lieblingsbaby” (“My Darling Baby”).
Our fabulous old baby doll here is in excellent condition concerning the bisque head; as you can see in the photographs, the bisque is all fine, and only around the crown of the head some traces of old glue from the original wig remain, I did not remove them.
The flirting–eye–and sleep-eye mechanism is excellent, the blue glass eyes are very expressive, some lid wax is missing. The tongue is quivering when the baby is moved, and two milk glass teeth are in place.
The head is marked with “K ۞ R / Simon & Halbig / 126 / Germany / 56”.

The 56 stands for the size, the large baby measures 56 cm / 22 inches all over and 40 cm / 16 inches sitting.

The original composition body has all fingers and toes, red parting lines partly present, arms and legs sit firm. Sadly, a former owner must have tried to wash the old baby and some colour is lost on the torso.

The wig our antique character baby is wearing is not original, but it fits her quite well!

The old baby is wearing an antique fine white lace trimmed undergarment (with a bigger and some small holes), a white cotton baby shirt, and a fabulous antique white Batiste Christening gown and a fine white antique baby bonnet. Also, she comes with a hand painted antique Rosenthal porcelain pendent/brooch on a velvet necklace.

All in all, a very precious old doll for your collection!
