"Oh my!" What has this precious girl so wide-eyed with delight? Is it a candy shop window? A new book on the nursery shelf? Whatever it is, her big brown eyes are simply glowing at the prospect, her cheeks flushed with delight in their frame of golden curls. Maybe her splendid, antique white cotton dress with intricate eyelet embroidery and a soft pink sash is new and she's seeing it for the first time I the mirror. Whatever the reason, her unbridled delight is sure to put a smile on your face!
Simon & Halbig has brought us a real beauty. Every collection deserves a 1078, but this big girl, standing at 30", will truly set your collection apart. Be sure to have a large space in your tallest cabinet shelf! She has a beautiful pale bisque head, with a lovely expression and complexion that will make anyone smile. Big chocolate brown eyes lure you in, while she is framed by golden cascades of curly mohair. She is adorned in a gorgeous, lace trimmed white cotton antique dress; how can you say no?. This girl is just pristine! This is the kind of girl you will be proud to have in the collection for years to come. She's also offered on layaway, so you can take your time to pay for her! Make this princess your very own!

She is on a beautiful Handwerck wood & composition body, with separate shoulder joint balls -- a truly desirable trait! Has lovely original finish. Stands at 30" tall.
She is adorned in a gorgeous ANTIQUE dress, with endless eyelet embroidery, with long sleeves; this dress truly belongs in a doll museum!

A pink bow decorates her hair, and a matching ribbon goes around the waist.
