The market for these beautiful Santa children is back with a vengeance right now, so I know that she will not be around long. Priced to sell with no excuses, this beauteous example will soar above and beyond your expectations when you meet her in person... this face will always possess a little piece of my heart! I never get tired of the Santa face!
She has a bisque socket head on a fully jointed composition and wood body. Blue sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, molded and feathered brows, open mouth with four upper teeth and characteristic lower lip mark, dimpled chin, pierced ears, very pretty strawberry blond human hair wig with flowing curls.
Dressed in a stunning antique white cotton dress with feather stitched vertical rows at the upper bodice alternating with hand drawn vertical rows, self piped waist and gathered skirt boasting more drawn work, this time in geometric shapes and flanked by more fancy feather-stitched white on white embroidery. The hem of the dress is a wide panel of lace with scalloped edge and a floral repeat pattern. Fine handiwork details are repeated at the collar and cuffs. There is also a double attached sash long enough to be tied into a pretty bow in the back and terminating with more feather-stitching, drawn work and lace edging. What more can I say? This dress is simply the bees knees! Additionally she wears a full cotton slip and a slinky pair of satin panties with lace edge, white socks, black vintage patent leather “Mary Jane” shoes and a wonderful antique white cotton bonnet with superb floral embroidery and a triple row of ruffled lace around the edge, completed with long white silk ribbon ties. Whew! Just an outstanding presentation overall! MARKS: SIMON & HALBIG 1249 DEP Germany
