One great maxim of a Victorian miss' wardrobe is that reds and pinks look best on dark-haired girls. This Simon and Halbig girl proves the point admirably! Her deep brown curls tumble in a rich contrast onto the collar of her wine-red velvet frock. A panel of soft cream embroidery stretches from the collar to the matching sash, softening the bold color. Even her cheeks are a vivid pink, blue sleep eyes glowing with innocence- and perhaps just a touch of pride. One day she'll run the greatest fashion house in Berlin, but today she just needs a loving home!
This beautiful girl by Simon & Halbig is sure to turn some heads! She's a lovely 1078 model girl, with a lovely bisque head with detailed painting and modeling of facial features. Big cloud-blue eyes sleep, and gaze off into the distance, longingly awaiting her new parents! She has a pair of earrings, and is adorned in a sweet red velvet dress. This girl is in great overall condition, so there's no reason to say no!

MARKS: 1078 Germany SIMON & HALBIG S&H 11 1/2
CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Modeling is crisp and the painting is sharp and delicate, indicative of particular care by the manufacturers. The blue glass eyes sit nicely in the head, with good pupil alignment; they have been re-set, but are on their original old rocker; they do not sleep anymore. The original wood & composition body has its all original finish, with the original glossy varnish on top to give it a nice sheen. There is some minor and typical age wear, but overall the body is great. Tight stringing gives her nice pose-ability. The costume is great, with no major issues, just some minor and typical age wear. This is a fantastic girl, deserving of your attention!
