When I think of luxury in German dolls, such a treasure as this comes to mind. An outstanding example of the character children made in the early 20th century by the illustrious Gebruder Heubach firm. This beautiful girl will absolutely delight you with her sweet yet somber expression, desirable blue sleep eyes, and her bitter sweet pouty lips! Her bisque head is flawless and has a depth of color that only the best Heubach dolls possess by virtue of the pink tinted bisque that this firm often used as a base coat for their heads. Her sweet silk dress is so perfect for her. What a sweet delight she is! If you are a collector of rare Heubach character dolls, I can assure you that such an amazing example of this rare mold will NOT be here long, so act fast if you have to have her. Don't let her sad look put you off, she's just hoping for a hug from you.
*This darling girl is indeed available on layaway -- Give us a call anytime at 718-859-0901 to hear an in-hand description of her condition or to discuss layaway options!*

Blue sleep eyes, delicately painted multi-stroke brows and lashes, closed pouting mouth with down-turned corners and shading, wonderful French blond human hair wig with short bangs set in banana curls. Dressed in a pretty pastel striped silk dress with lace edge trim, antique undergarments, white socks and antique pink cloth shoes and finished off with a pretty pink silk bow in her hair.

OUR GUARANTEE: Why purchase from a small family business like ours, rather than a large scale auction house or vast public company? The decision to buy an antique is a serious one. Collecting is an extremely fun and rewarding process, but we know it can get expensive and, at times, stressful, so we want you to know that we truly appreciate your patronage and interest, thus, we've compiled a list of how we endeavor to be the best at what we do, to ensure that you come away from your purchase on cloud nine of doll heaven. Because every transaction, no matter how small, means a whole lot to us, we promise to always offer you:
~Personalized Service: If you have questions, we will respond to your emails or phone calls very promptly, and do everything we can to communicate effortlessly. We know that you deserve the very best service we can provide, and we will strive to give you a stellar experience from the moment you contact us the moment you open the box and beyond.
~Clear and Concise photographs: We try to post as many as 20 photographs of our items, especially for our most expensive dolls, compared to many other places that often fail to share more than 3-4 images of even extremely pricy dolls. Though the number of pictures we can post is limited, we anticipate your needs as a collector and try to photograph every pertinent detail. We want you to know every centimeter of the item you are purchasing backwards and forwards because we have nothing to hide, and will try to address everything we can in the condition report. Want more photos? Just ask. We will send them as soon as possible.
~Flexible Layaways: We are one of the only institutions in the business to offer 1 year layaway plans on $8000+ items, and we are proud to say that we've helped thousands of clients afford the dolls of their dreams over the years... And we have 250 layaways in progress right now! When we started offering layaways years ago, very few other venues for purchasing antique dolls had such an option- and we are proud to say that we offer some of the longest and most flexible plans in the business.
~35 Years of Experience: You simply can't beat the knowledge accrued by constant research, field work, international buying trips, and 35 years of experience. As many of our returning clients can attest to, we try to know all that there is to know about our beautiful treasures- and we want to share that knowledge with the doll world so that these stories and fine objects can be enjoyed for generations to come.
