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 alert expression, her desirable blue sleep eyes, and her delicately crafted original silk dress! Her bisque head is flawless and has a depth of color that only the best Heubach dolls possess. Her sweet silk dress is so perfect for her. What a darling 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. This mold doll books for upwards of $4500. But don't let that high tag put you off, I got her for a good price and I am passing that on to you, my loyal customers. She's just hoping for a warm hug from you.

She also wears a lovely antique cream cotton full slip with tucks and lace trim and antique cream cotton split pantaloons with tucks and lace trim.
