Beyond amazing in every way, this beauty is one of those dolls that will take your collection to the world class level; after all, anyone can have a Jumeau, but few collectors can boast owning and loving so EXTRAORDINARY a doll. The Mein Liebling is a “must-have” for every collection; but this 19" example is the most coveted version you'll find, standing on her original fully jointed teen-aged body, and clad in her original pale yellow organdy costume, down to the shoes and wig! Her closed pouting mouth is exactly what makes her stand out amongst the coveted child characters of her era. Snap her up while she is still here; this is one of those dolls that you just won't be able to say no to!

CONDITION: Generally excellent. Lovely quality smooth bisque with pleasant coloring, expert and fine decoration of features, wonderfully sculptured modeling of adorable face with character expression, closed pouting mouth and original sleep eyes. A few insignificant wig pulls under the wig. The antique Kammer & Reinhardt body is in sturdy condition with repair to the right hip of the torso and repaint to the right thigh. This doll normally books for $6000 when all original but I am offering her at a significantly reduced price. A captivating doll with desirable pouting expression and closed mouth. Another standard MUST for any collection and this one has a great look and presence to her!
