Flirty dolls are among some of the most desirable bisque dolls that ever graced the doll market in the early 1900s. Not only do they have those delightful molded and painted bisque heads that we have come to love from typical child dolls, but they have quite exceptional “flirty” eyes, that glance from side to side, depending on the tilt of the head. This particular flirty doll is made by Kammer and Reinhardt and Simon & Halbig, in the 126 mold, and standing on an exceptional toddler body, at a height of 13” tall. She wears a blond human hair wig, in a short style, and is adorned in a cute and classic white costume. She’s in great condition, so you can buy her with confidence! Snatch her up now!

She stands at 13” tall, with a bisque socket head, with molded and painted features: blue glass flirty eyes, with tin sleep lids, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown flyaway brows, an open mouth with two upper teeth. She stands on an antique wood and composition toddler-type body, fully-jointed. She wears a blond human hair wig.
She wears a white cotton antique dress with lace trim and blue trimming, with a white lace bonnet atop her head. Underneath goes a white cotton antique slip and pantaloons, with cream waffle weave socks, and brown leather shoes.
MARKS: K&R SIMON & HALBIG 126 Germany [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The glass eyes work well on the flirting mechanism, moving from side to side with a tilt of the head. The tin sleep lids work well. We recommend placing a small bundle of tissue paper inside the head when displaying the doll, to slightly push the eyes against the interior of the head, to keep them from moving about. The body is good, with only some minor and expected wear: there are some areas of minor touchup, but overall she has the original finish. The wig is sturdy and supple, with no smoke odors. The costume is good, with only minor and typical age wear. Overall, she’s a great doll!
