Beautiful in every way, this darling girl by CM Bergmann and Simon & Halbig is a feisty little cutie! Designed specifically for distribution in the early John Wanaker department stores, this sweet girl has a nicely-crafted bisque socket head, with lifelike child features designed with high-quality painting and modeling. Big blue eyes gaze longingly into the distance, accompanied by a pale complexion with hints of blush to her cheeks. She is topped with a bright blond curly wig in a soft mohair, and stands at 24" tall. She's on her original stamped "Wanaker" body, and is adorned in a lovely dress made from antique fabrics and lace. Truly, this girl is a sight to behold!

Bisque socket head with beautiful deep modeling and expert painting, with big blue glass sleep eyes, framed by painted lower lashes, feathered molded brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth and a lightly-dimpled chin, with lightly blushed cheeks. She has pierced ears. She wears a blond curly wig in a soft mohair, with bangs. She is on her original antique wood & composition body, in original finish condition, and fully-jointed and pose-able, with the original Wanaker stamp label on the back of the torso. She stands at 24" tall, with a great presentation. She wears a small gold-filled antique pin on her bodice.
She wears a beautiful, top-quality dress, made out of excellent antique white cotton fabric and lace trim and insertion lace, with a ruffled skirt and a button-up back. A blue silk ribbon ties around the waist, while she wears a little blue bow in her hair as a bit of decoration. Underneath the dress, she wears a vintage white cotton full slip with lace trim, and a pair of matching white cotton lace-trimmed pantaloons. White cotton socks adorn her feet, along with a pair of white faux leather boots with three button closures.
MARKS: CM BERGMANN SIMON & HALBIG 10 1/2 [back of head, incised]
Special Quality made in Germany for JOHN WANAMAKER [rectangular yellow label, back of torso]
CONDITION: Excellent! She has gorgeous, pale bisque with expert and delicate painting of features, crisp and deep modeling of an absolutely beautiful face, pleasant, subtle color. The bisque head is absolutely free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines. The glass eyes sparkle and are with great pupil alignment, and they sleep well. The wood & composition body has most of its shiny original finish, and is in very good overall condition, with only the most minor of age wear here and there, which is typical and to be expected. The joints have some typical and expected wear, along with a few areas of touch-up, noticeably at the neck socket, and the right pinky finger (which has been rebuilt). The costume is great, with no issues other than the typical and minor wear. Overall, she's a beautiful girl you cannot deny!
