-FULL DESCRIPTION: This stunning German doll is a BIG 28+ inches tall with a bisque socket head on her original Heinrich Handwerck 15 piece, ball jointed composition and turned wood body. The Handwerck Company made the fine quality bodies and commissioned the heads to be made by the Simon & Halbig Company from Handwerck’s own designs.
FACE: This girl has a very sweet, expressive, character face as if she were modeled after a real little girl. Her nose is upturned with a deep philtrum beneath it and there is a soft dimple in her chin. She has beautifully modeled ears as well. There is a slight mold separation behind the right ear done in the manufacturing.
-MARK: Her head is marked Germany HEINRICH HANDWERCK SIMON & HALBIG 5
-HEAD: Bisque head is of highest quality with NO chips, NO cracks and NO repairs. Complexion is creamy and smooth with lushly blushed, full cheeks with NO rubs.
-EYES: She has beautiful bright heather blue sleep eyes that work well and retain all of the original wax and quite a few of her original hair lashes. She has expertly painted upper and lower lashes as well.
-MOUTH: Her sweet mouth has the very distinctive look the Handwerck designs are noted for with a very pouty upper lip and the appearance of her tongue touching the lower lip. Lips are shaded in a deep peachy pink with 4 upper teeth showing. Nose and inner eye corners have matching pink accent dots.
-BROWS: Perfectly painted, molded brows in long multi-strokes which are close in the center and sweep to the outer eye corners.
-BODY: Original 15 piece, ball jointed, composition and turned wood body in very good condition with no restoration. It has some paint rubs at some joints. Inside is a voice box. Now when you tip the doll forward, she just squeaks. Originally she would have said 'Mama'. The tape around her torso shows where the manufacturer cut the torso in half to insert the voice box. The tape appears to be original.
-WIG: is a lovely auburn vintage replacement with long soft curls. I have her original brunette human hair wig that is not in the best condition, but will be sent along with her.
-CLOTHING: She is dressed in a very pretty antique cream colored 100% pure silk dress with a dropped waist and lace trimmed neckline and cuffs. Neckline and cuffs are threaded with antique pink silk ribbon to gather tight to fit nicely. It is tied with a blue silk ribbon around the dropped waist and has a matching bow in her hair. The dress buttons up the back and has two mends on back of one sleeve, a dime sized faint stain on the lower bodice and a couple of pin holes. Tied around her shoulders is an antique lace scarf pinned with a gold engraved antique brooch.
-UNDIES: Undies are all antique and include a full slip with lace hem that buttons in back and has a full skirt, an antique white cotton onesie with lace trimmed cuffs, antique black cotton stockings and vintage black shoes tied with black silk ribbon.
A really nice quality doll in wonderful condition in such a large size.. She would be a STAR in your collection.
