Huge 28" Handwerck Halbig 109 Antique Doll on Near-Mint Original Body
This darling Handwerck Halbig 109 is ready to steal your heart away! With her eye-catching presentation, and her adorable face, she is bound to get some love from her new parents! The Handwerck 109 is often a staple of any collector of German dollies, very fun to play up in different costumes, and loved for their consistent and adorable faces. This girl is no different, sure to please whoever decides to take her in.
**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 raised feathered brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth and a dimpled chin, with lightly blushed cheeks over pale bisque finish. Her ears are pierced, and she wears a lovely soft blond mohair wig that comes down to her shoulders. She is on her beautiful near-mint condition wood & composition body, standing at 28” tall. You can tell it is an earlier model because it doesn't bear the Handwerck marking: has some of the original finish.
She wears a nice pale pink silk dress with lace trim, with a white cotton lace-trimmed full slip, lace-trimmed half slip, and lace-trim pantaloons. Cream cotton knit socks adorn hfer feet, and she wears nice old black leather shoes.
MARKS: 109 -- 15 DEP Germany Handwerck 6
CONDITION: Faint hairline to back of head, coming down from rim. The hairline is rather faint, and isn't in the way of the visible face. Otherwise, the head is free of any other hairlines, and is free of cracks, chips, or restoration. Nice, 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, with great pupil alignment, and sleep well. Original body is gorgeous in an impressive height at 28", with the original back "Handwerck" stamp in red. Hands are beautiful with no missing fingers, and the body has the all original finish, leading to a near-mint condition that is hard to miss. Truly, this is a lovely girl despite her little flaw.
