When I think of character 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 little girl with her sweet inquisitive expression and closed mouth will absolutely delight you. She has a sweet yet somber expression, desirable blue sleep eyes, and desirable 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 bisque for their heads. And her sweet costume is reminiscent an innocent childhood of the 1910s from which she hails. 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. She is available on our layaway plan if you want to buy her on a budget and stretch your payments for up to eight months! Call us at 718-859-0901 for further details on this special antique character doll or to set up a layaway plan.
She has the desirable pink bisque socket head on a fully jointed composition and wood body with the Holtze Mass stamp often found on bodies made for Gebruder Heubach. She has lovely watery blue sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, feathered two-tone brows, closed mouth down-turned corners, dark center line, full cheeks, original blond mohair wig with multitudinous spiral curls.
Dressed in an antique pink dotted Swiss cotton dress with lace net trim , antique cream cotton full slip with ruffled, lace edged hem, pink cotton lace edged panties, antique white rayon socks, antique cream oilcloth shoes with pompoms, sweet cream cotton bonnet with lace and ruffled brim, and she is finished off with a wonderful antique 14 carat gold bar pin featuring pink enamel and real pearls.
