MARKS: 1078 Germany SIMON & HALBIG S&H 15 1/2 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The facial modeling and painting is top-notch, offering a cute doll face. The original glass eyes sleep well and the lids have been re-waxed and the rocker has been reinforced. The body is in great shape, with only the most minor and typical age wear and minor touch ups at the joints; the original finish is still present, and the stringing is good. The costume is generally in fine antique condition but somewhat large on this doll because it is pinned in the back. The gorgeous long tail mohair wig is soft and supple and fits well. Overall, this is a beautiful doll!
