What a treat this distinct 1039 Simon & Halbig is. Certainly one of the most charming examples of this model. The pale bisque, deep modeling and beautiful blue flirting eyes of this model certainly contribute to her ready appeal to most collectors of antique dolls. Her face is very sweet, with those heavy lids and smiling lips make her eerily beautiful presence is simply captivating. She can express so many moods with those flirting eyes as you can see in the many photos I have provided. In her nicely styled cream cotton dress with lace trim, pink bows and piping plus her full set of antique underwear and matching pink hat all contribute to her charming allure. And don't forget those adorable "Goldielocks" mohair curls that crown her adorable face. On her original French body, this little girl is ready to wrap you around her little finger!
