What a lovely Simon & Halbig 1199 boy, standing almost 18” tall. These are a more difficult mold to find and very appealing. He has beautiful olive toned skin with plump cheeks. I see no hairlines or repairs to the bisque. His brown paperweight eyes are in their original plaster set and still retain the mohair lashes. This mold has very slanted eyes and was made to look like an Asian child, rather than just changing the tone of the skin as was done with many other molds. The open mouth is nicely painted with exposed teeth. He wears his original human hair wig with a queue. His body is in excellent shape but I did not undress him all the way as the jacket and pants are stitched on. The silk jacket with embroidery is original to him and has a lot of fraying, but it has survived a lot! The silk pants and hat were made more recently of blue silk. His silk shoes are fantastic and fit well, however not original to him. The soles are breaking loose from the silk. He will be shipped with his original shoes which are in poor shape.
