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 is a life-size 22” tall! You'll need a big crib or highchair for sure! He wears a blond human hair wig, in a short style, and is adorned in a cute and classic white costume. He’s in great condition, so you can buy her with confidence! Snatch him up now!

He has a bisque socket head, with molded and painted features: blue glass flirty eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with two upper teeth. He stands at 22” tall, but is accustomed to sitting on his five-piece bent-limb baby body. He wears a fine light brown mohair wig, in a short straight style.
He wears a white cotton antique baby gown with a Peter Pan collar, featuring dark blue diamond-pattern smocking across the bodice and near the ends of the sleeves. There are two pockets at the bottom of the gown. Underneath, he wears a white cotton underwear set of a chemise and short pantaloons, both with lace trim. On his feet, he wears a pair of off-white crocheted booties, with an open sandal-like pattern on the top and cream silk ties. On his head is a crisp white bonnet.
MARKS: K R [with six-pointed star] / SIMON & HALBIG / 126
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features, but has some rubs on the face. The glass eyes work well on the flirting mechanism, moving from side to side with a tilt of the head, with good alignment. The body is good, with only some minor and expected wear. The wig is sturdy and supple, with no smoke odors. The costume is good, with only minor and typical age wear. Overall, he’s a great doll!
