What a terribly sweet, pint sized bebe we have for your purchasing pleasure today! One of the sweetest open mouth Simon & Halbig DEP dolls I have seen, this delicious example has the cutest modeling of the cheeks with a powdery finish to the bisque and stunning French paperweight sleeping eyes, which makes her an irresistible example. I could just hug her close to my heart for an afternoon or two. She is especially delightful because she has that early sculpting, her original shoes, socks and wig, but really one of her shining features is her beautiful red silk ensemble with a striped peach trimming. I couldn't imagine a more perfect bebe for the beginning collector, or the connoiseur who sees the value of these wonderful S&H dolls for the French trade as they continue to go up in value and desirability. A new generation of doll collectors is discovering how these rare and beautiful German bebes are truly on par with their French counterparts, and I know that this beautiful example will be off to her new home soon, in such pristine condition with so fine an ensemble. Get her before she is marked "Sale Pending."
