It's no surprise that the Handwerck Halbig 109 is seen often in the doll market. They bear the essential, typical qualities that all doll lovers have come to expect from their German bisque bebes -- big, sparkling eyes, expert modeling and painting of features, and an ability to look fabulous in just about any type of costume! This particular girl sports a light pink dress with golden curls atop her head, all topped off with a beaming slight smile that will just pull you in! She has so much love to give, and we are sure you won't have any trouble bonding with this blond beauty!
**This beautiful girl is offered on a short layaway! Feel free to call us at 718-859-0901 to talk about payment options and layaway terms!**
Bisque socket head with beautiful modeling and expert painting, with big brown glass sleep eyes, framed by painted lashes, thick feathered brows, an an open mouth with four upper teeth and a dimpled chin, with lightly blushed cheeks. Her ears are pierced with earrings, and she wears a soft blond mohair wig in curls that come down to her shoulders. She is on a beautiful Handwerck wood & composition body. You can tell it is an earlier model because it doesn't bear the Handwerck marking: has lovely original finish. Stands at 23.5" tall. She wears a pink cotton dress with white lace trimming and overlay, and eyelet embroidery designs, while underneath goes a white cotton slip with lace trim and tucking, a pair of white cotton pantaloons, cream shoes and socks.
MARKS: 109 / 12 N DEP Germany H 4
CONDITION: Absolutely Excellent. Gorgeous, pale bisque with expert and delicate painting of features, crisp and deep modeling of an absolutely gorgeous face, pleasant, subtle color. The glass eyes sparkle, and sleep well, with great pupil alignment. The wood & composition body with shiny original finish and in great condition with barely any age wear! Her hands are gorgeous, with their original peachy & glossy finish. On the left hand, the middle finger has been expertly re-glued; it is barely noticeable! Great pose-ability. Overall a great doll with exceptional presentation.
