This 7 ½ inch tall doll, circa the late 19th century, was manufactured in Germany by Simon & Halbig. She has blue glass sleep eyes and an open mouth with molded teeth. The blonde mohair wig is original. The doll is all bisque with a swivel neck and a five piece body. She has the rarer long black over the knee stockings and five strap brown heeled shoes. The back of the head is incised, “886//S&H.” The bisque on both the socket head and body appear to be in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. I believe the lace trimmed chemise is most likely the factory original. The doll also wears an antique white cotton dress and underclothing. She is lovely and definitely one of the rarer models all bisques with creamy complexion and a fine example of Simon & Halbig artistry.
