Simon & Halbig held nothing back when designing and producing their delightful "Santa"! This mold always delights me with her cheery disposition and her delightful little lip accent. And this sweetie is dressed so perfectly in her schoolgirl costume!. She has bright blue glass sleep eyes that beg for attention, along with an open mouth with four upper teeth. She stands at a compact 16" tall, on a lovely original finish body. Her original golden mohair curls grace her head, while she is dressed to present, from head to toe. She's in excellent condition, and is ready for your love! Do not waste a moment more; make this beauty your own!

She has a bisque socket head, with bright blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, and feathered brown brows. She has an open mouth with the characteristic lower lip mark typical of all "SANTA" dolls. She has four upper teeth, with a pale overall complexion and subtle selective blushing. She has pierced ears with antique glass bead earrings, and wears a light blond original mohair wig in a short, curly style. She stands at 16" tall on her original antique wood & composition fully jointed body with original finish.
Her head is bedecked with an antique straw hat with applied flowers. She wears a superb antique white cotton dress, with overall embroidered flowers, a nice maroon corduroy jumper with clear glass buttons, an antique full slip with lace trim and an antique pair of lace edged pantaloons, white cotton ribbed socks and a stunning pair of fine brown leather three strap shoes. Just a perfect little girl!
MARKS: S&H 1249 DEP 6 Germany [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Generally Excellent! The bisque head is in good condition, and is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Top-quality painting and modeling of features. The original high quality antique body is great, with its shiny original finish, and good sturdy stringing. The right forearm was split and re-glued. There is only some minor wear to the joints, typical for these dolls which are now over 100 years old. The antique costume is great, with wonderful presentation, with only the most minor age wear (the jumper may be vintage). Overall, this is a fabulous girl, bound to please!
