*The Best* 9.75" Simon & Halbig 1078 Doll on DESIRABLE Fully-Jointed Wood Body
My oh my, just look at that face! Take a moment to appreciate this little bundle of joy, in the form of an absolutely-darling and desirable Simon & Halbig 1078. This charming girl is on a truly lovely body -- a desirable fully-jointed wood and composition body, while she's adorned in a lovely navy blue dress with white lace. She has no shortage of presentation value -- she will be the envy of all your other little bisque girls! With that original twin braided-bun wig, she has our jaws dropping. We cannot wait to send her off to the lucky customer who decides to take her in!
***Yes, this doll is available on layaway! Feel free to call us at 718-859-0901 to talk about payment options and layaway terms. She is also offered with 100% FREE SHIPPING within the USA.***
Bisque socket head with nice modeling and painting, with brown glass sleep eyes, framed by painted lashes, feathered brows, and an open mouth with four upper square-cut teeth, with lightly blushed cheeks. Her ears are pierced, and she wears her original antique brown human hair wig with twin braided buns. She is on her original wood & composition body, standing at 9.75" tall. The body is a highly-desired model, with fully-jointed arms, and a nice original finish throughout.
She wears an exceptional quality navy blue silk dress, with delicate white lace trim and adornment on the collar. The dress closes with two loop buttons on the back. Underneath goes a white cotton half slip with lace trim, matching pantaloons, white socks, and cream oilcloth shoes.
MARKS: 1078 SIMON & HALBIG S & H Germany 1 [Back of head]
CONDITION: Very thin pink-colored firing line to the back of the head. This line is very faint, and is hard to see with the nice blushing to the bisque overall. Besides this firing line, this girl is truly exceptional, her head having no other damage such as hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. She has a small cheek rub to the left cheek. Her eyes sleep well and sit nicely in the head, with great alignment. The body is exceptional, with original finish and a desirable model with the jointed arms. There is some minor paint touchup to the neck socket, and overall age wear. The costume is fabulous, with no excuses. This is one girl you don't want to pass up!
