When I think of luxury in German dolls, such a treasure as this comes to mind! She is an outstanding rare example of the character children made in the early 20th century by the illustrious Gebruder Heubach firm. This delightful girl will absolutely enchant you with her sweet expression, her desirable blue sleep eyes, and her delicately crafted antique silk dress! Her pink bisque head is flawless and has a depth of color that only the best Heubach dolls possess. Her sweet dress is so perfect for her. What a cherubic darling she is! If you are a collector of rare Heubach character dolls, I can assure you that such an amazing example of this rare mold will NOT be here long, so act fast if you have to have her. The super rare 7550 mold is very rarely seen for sale, so don’t pass up this opportunity! She's just hoping for a warm hug from you!
*This darling girl is indeed available on layaway -- Give us a call anytime at 718-859-0901 to hear an in-hand description of her condition or to discuss layaway options!*
She has a pink bisque socket head with blue glass sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, two-tone feathered brows, and an open/closed mouth with an unusual molded tongue. She stands at 18” on a signed Heinrich Handwerck fully-jointed wood and composition body. Topped off with her original golden blond human hair wig styled in coiled braids with spit curls, you're looking at a real winner!
She is dressed in an outstanding striped silk dress, with pink, orange, purple, and teal stripes, with antique white lace overlaid on the bodice, with ruffles at the waist and shoulders, with a matching striped silk detachable collar with white lace trim, which ties in the front. Underneath, she wears a pink silk full slip with lace straps, and pink pantaloons with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of hand crocheted ecru socks and tan leather lace-up boots. Finishing off the ensemble, she wears white silk bows in her hair. Just a darling overall presentation!
