DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful 21” Antique German Bisque Head Doll by the Heinrich Handwerck company which made the bodies and commissioned the bisque heads from Simon & Halbig from their own designs circa 1900. Germany HEINRICH HANDWERCK SIMON & HALBIG 2 1/4 Simon & Halbig bisque heads are of very good quality. This one has NO cracks, NO hairlines and NO repairs. There are a few flakes on each earring hole. She has a nice soft creamy complexion and softly blushed cheeks with just a slight rub on the right cheek. Brows are molded and nicely painted in layered, feathered strokes. She has upper and lower painted lashes as well. Shaded and outlined pink lips on her open mouth with 4 pearly upper teeth and a replaced red felt tongue. She has lovely original brown glass eyes that have been set.
Body: Her original 13 piece composition and turned wood body with attached balls at the elbows and is in very good condition with minor touch ups and lower legs have darkened with age and likely had dark stockings originally. It has been restrung and poses well.
Clothing: She is wearing what I believe is her original cream and red pattern dress with elaborate open work and wide scalloped lace in layers. The fabric looks like a very sheer linen and it has both machine and hand stitching. The bodice is puffed with rows of red silk sewn around it and the sleeves. It's quite a stunning dress. I made antique red and crystal bead earring to match it and she wears antique red leather shoes that are a little worn, with the original red ties and buckled bows on the toes.
Her unders include a vintage flannel petticoat and antique pantaloons with rows of lace at the hems and white cotton stockings.
Her wig is an antique soft brown mohair one that has been styled in an upsweep with black jet beads woven through the curls.
A very sweet doll all dressed up in her Sunday best and display ready. Don't forget you can take advantage of 10 per cent discount if paying with a check or money order. Thanks so much for you interest in my dolls.
