Flirty dolls are among some of the most desirable bisque dolls that ever graced the doll market in the early 1900s. Not only do they have those delightful molded and painted bisque heads that we have come to love from typical child dolls, but they have quite exceptional “flirty” eyes that glance from side to side with a tilt of the head. This particular flirty doll is made by Kammer and Reinhardt and Simon & Halbig, in the 126 mold, and is standing on an exceptional five piece toddler body at a height of 16” tall. She wears her original brown human hair wig, in a short style, and is adorned in a cute and classic antique costume. She’s in great condition, so you can buy her with confidence! Snatch her up now!

Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip with lace trim, and a pair of vintage pantaloons with lace trim. On her feet, she wears a pair of pale pink knit wool booties with white bows.

MARKS: K&R SIMON & HALBIG 126 Germany [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. The head does have a firing flaw near the left eyebrow, and inherent darkening of the mold lines on the sides of the head. The glass eyes work well on the flirting mechanism, moving from side to side with a tilt of the head. The tin sleep lids work well. The body is in great condition with pristine original finish, with only some minor and expected age wear. The wig is sturdy and supple, with no smoke odors. The costume is good, with only minor and typical age wear. Overall, she’s a great flirty doll, so desirable in today's doll collectible market!
