*Incredible* 30" CM Bergmann / Simon & Halbig Antique Bisque Doll in Original Antique Dress
"Oh Mama!" this C.M. Bergmann girl sighs rapturously, gazing into the mirror. Behind her, big sister smiles as the seamstress marks the hem on her veil. With the wedding only three months away, her junior bridesmaid must have the prettiest frock of all! And little sister couldn't be more thrilled; her dark eyes shine with delight, framed by cascading, coppery curls beneath a lacy white bonnet. Her original, antique dress is a fantasy of creamy lace and broderie anglaise, with a wide ruffled collar and a delicate silk sash. It's easy to imagine her walking down the aisle herself, years from now!
CM Bergmann and Simon & Halbig worked together to bring you this delightful babe, with her best presentation face on! She's adorned in her all-original antique dress and underthings, along with a fabulous matching antique bonnet, set atop a head of fiery ginger curls. She stands at a great height of 30 inches tall, making her an impressive sight for the collection cabinet. She's on a beautiful antique and original finish body, with sturdy stringing so she can strike a variety of poses. With her high-quality bisque head in great condition, with no negative issues, this jaw-dropping angel is a MUST-HAVE for the collection.

Bisque socket head with beautiful deep modeling and expert painting, with big brown glass sleep eyes, framed by painted upper and lower lashes, feathered flyaway 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 ginger curly wig in a soft mohair, with bangs and curls that come down to her shoulders. She is on her original antique wood & composition body, in original finish condition, and fully-jointed and pose-able. She stands at 30" tall, with a great presentation. She wears a small gold-filled antique pin on her bodice.
She wears a beautiful, all-original antique top-quality dress, made out of excellent antique white cotton fabric, with painfully-crafted broderie anglaise (open embroidery), with surface embroidery patterns. An antique white cotton bonnet sits atop her head, with eyelet lace trim and little decorative flowers. An antique mauve silk ribbon ties around her waist, while underneath she wears an antique cream cotton full slip with wool skirt, and button-up back, along with a white cotton antique half slip with pleated bottom trim. She wears an antique white cotton pair of pantaloons with lace trim, and white cotton leggings, along with a pair of tan shoes.
MARKS: CM BERGMANN SIMON & HALBIG 13 1/2 [back of head, incised]
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 is outstanding; it has most of its shiny original finish, and is in great condition, with only the most minor of age wear here and there, which is typical and to be expected. The costume is great, with no issues other than some minor, particularly to the antique dress. The back of the dress opening has some wear, and there are a few isolated small holes. Still, the wear is typical and to be expected. Overall, she's a beautiful girl you cannot deny!
