If you've been waiting for a sweet, flirting antique doll, look no further! This delightful, 18" cabinet-ready flirty is just a gem! What do we love the most about her? Well, just about everything! She really has something special about her face. And making her even more special than her sweet face molded in the rare Simon and Halbig 1039, is that her flirty eyes are on pull strings, rather than the more typical gravity-operated flirty eyes. This special little darling is sure to be the envy of your doll club! Grab her now and let her walk straight into your loving heart!
~This lovely girl is available on layaway! Take up to 8 months to pay for her. Give us a call anytime to hear a personalized, in- hand description of her fabulous condition, or to discuss layaway options at 718.859.0901.
She has a bisque socket head with bright cobalt blue flirty eyes with pull cords, real upper lashes and painted lower lashes, feathered dark brown brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, pierced ears, and a lightly dimpled chin. The pull cords are tan, with faceted tan beads at the ends. She stands at 18” on her original fully jointed wood and composition body, and wears a brown French human hair wig, shoulder-length with the ends curled under.
She wears a modern-made blue and tan striped silk frock, with a cream-colored ruched silk placket down the front of the bodice, and a sash at the waist with a bow at the front, hanging lower in the front over the pleated skirt, in the same blue and tan striped silk as the dress. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip with lace trim, and a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons with blue embroidery on the hems. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and modern-made black leather shoes with brown trim and rosettes at the toes. On her head is a dark blue velvet hat, with white lace under the brim and a spray of pink silk flowers along the band. An outstanding overall presentation!
MARKS: SH 1039 / 9 DEP [incised, back of head]
CONDITION: Excellent! She has gorgeous, pale bisque with expert and delicate painting of features, crisp and deep modeling of an absolutely beautiful face, with pleasant, subtle color. The bisque head is absolutely free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines; there is some slight typical flaking to the earring holes, and a superficial black paint mark on the back of the head. The blue glass eyes sparkle and are aligned well in the head, and the pull cords work properly and smoothly. The wood & composition body has most of its shiny original finish, and is in very good overall condition, with only the most minor of age wear here and there, which is typical and to be expected. The costume is in good condition, with a nice clean presentation and fits her well, with no issues other than the typical and minor wear. Overall, she's a beautiful girl you cannot deny!
