This 8 ½ inch tall doll is simply fabulous due to her originality. She is in completely original condition with a wonderful dress and bonnet. The bisque shoulder head was manufactured in Germany by Simon & Halbig circa 1909. The mold number for the head is 1160 but I am unable to see it as I don’t want to disturb the total originality of the doll. Miss Simon & Halbig has glass set eyes and her original blonde mohair wig in original set with curls. She has a cloth body with bisque lower arms and lower legs ending in molded socks and molded and painted two strap black painted shoes. The silk dress and bonnet are simply fabulous with layers of lace trimmed petticoats underneath. There is some typical age wear and melting to the silk. Being in such original condition, I would assume that her new owner will leave her as she is to preserve her. The clothing should definitely not be removed! If you have been waiting to buy a Simon & Halbig Little Women doll, you will never find a better example. I am so tempted to keep her myself!
