With large, enchanting original blue sleep eyes, her original blond mohair wig, her original pale blu and white cotton dress with lace and silk ribbon trim, the crispest modeling I’ve seen on a Simon & Halbig doll, this beauty will remain a gold standard doll in whatever collection she enters. In fact collectors really prize top examples of even the most common dolls. And this beauty is far from common. Take a close look at our photographs of this amazing child; we promise she will not disappoint. Simply a choice example of this desirable mold.
