It's surprising that the dolls by Gebruder Ohlhaver are some of the lesser-known models in the doll world, considering just how beautifully these girls are made. Gebruder Ohlhaver's dolls are particularly-beautiful, with a bit of character-like accents to the faces, making them highly desirable. Crisply-molded bisque heads are modeled with endearing, youthful expressions, with pale complexions and bright, vibrant eyes full of life. This particular girl carries these desirable traits with her, along with a blond curly mohair wig that frames her face like a wreath of golden sunlight! She stands at 25" tall, a good height for the collection cabinet. She's adorned in a cute costume, bound to draw some attention. With no real issues or damage to speak of, this beauty is just what you need! I know that she catches our eyes whenever she's in the room, and we are sure she'll do the same with you! Don't hesitate to add this beauty to your doll family!
