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 delightfully dimpled girl will absolutely enchant you with her sweet alert expression, her desirable blue sleep eyes, and her delicately crafted antique cotton plaid dress! Her bisque head is flawless and has a depth of color that only the best Heubach dolls possess. Her sweet dress is so perfect for her. What a cherubic darling 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. She's just hoping for a warm hug from you.
