MARKS: HEINRICH HANDWERCK SIMON & HALBIG 3/0 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent! Her bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, featuring top-quality modeling and painting of features. There are a few tiny wig pulls to the back of the head, and her left pierced earlobe has been chipped through, but it’s not noticeable. Her original glass sleep eyes are aligned nicely, and sleep well, on the original rocker. Her fully-jointed body has good painting and varnish, with only the typical and expected minor age wear, particularly at the joints. The costume is good, with only minor age wear, which is expected. Overall, she’s a great doll!
