8" Oriental Bisque Socket Head Child Simon & Halbig
This little charmer is the oriental mold 1199 of Simon & Halbig. She has the deep character modeling and arched eyebrows of an Asian child as well as the slightly yellow cast to the bisque and to her composition body. She has a five piece body with molded and painted shoes. She has brown glass sleep eyes and an open mouth with teeth. She is wearing an antique silk costume that is sewn on and most likely original. She has a hat made of black crepe paper with embellishment. Some of the paper has worn off the top showing the cotton stuffing. If I was the new owner I would carefully patch it with black crepe paper. I don't make that kind of decision for our customers as it would also be fine left alone. Her head appears perfect although I did not remove the glued on fragile hat.
