When I think of character 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 little girl with her sweet inquisitive expression and closed mouth will absolutely delight you. She has a sweet yet somber expression, sweet blue intaglio eyes, and desirable bitter-sweet pouty lips! Her bisque head i has a depth of color that only the best Heubach dolls possess by virtue of the pink tinted bisque that this firm often used as a base bisque for their heads. And her sweet costume is reminiscent an innocent childhood of the 1910s from which she hails. What a sweet delight she is!
