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 cupid's bow open mouth will absolutely delight you. She has a sweet yet somber expression, brown sleep eyes, and desirable flawless bisque complexion! And her sweet costume is reminiscent an innocent childhood of the 1890s even though she dates from the 1910s--perhaps it was her mom's childhood dress. What a sweet darling she is!
If you are a collector of rare Heubach character dolls, I can assure you that such an delightful example of this popular mold will NOT be here long, so act fast if you have to have her. She is available on our layaway plan if you want to buy her on a budget and stretch your payments for up to five months! Call us at 718-859-0901 for further details on this special antique character doll or to set up a layaway plan.
She has a lovely bisque socket head on a fully jointed composition and wood body. Original brown sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, feathered brows, open mouth with four upper teeth, pretty blond mohair wig.
She is dressed in an antique-style pink dropped waist dress with shirred front panel outlined with lace trim gathered sash and piped collar, underneath she wears two layers of undergarments consisting of a pink full slip and a pair of linen pantaloons, white knit stockings and beige leather shoes with rosettes, ribbons and faux pearls.

CONDITION: Excellent. Fine quality bisque, expert and delicate painting of features, softer modeling of unique character face with large expressive eyes and small mouth, pleasant blushing. The fully jointed body in excellent original finish condition with very minimal age wear but some fingertips worn down and touch ups where needed. The Gebruder Heubach factory is well known for its wonderful character children. Their heads generally have a more lifelike appearance. The period style costuming of this doll certainly embellishes the character face and recalls earlier times! An endearing character with lots of nostalgic appeal. This Gebruder Heubach will add interest to any collection of German character dolls!
