The 719 mold is such a beautiful doll created by Simon & Halbig. This is the open mouthed version and she just sparkles. This specific doll's modeling is different from other 719 molds. To me the appearance is similar to a 939. I think it is because it is an early 719 and the eye cuts were made differently than later versions.
The bisque head has no hairlines or repairs, but the bisque is a bit uneven from the pouring. At certain angles you can see mold slip lines, completely inherent in the making of the doll. There are some really subtle cheek rubs. None of this affects her charm, but needs to be mentioned. Her eyes are fabulous blue paperweight eyes. She has the open mouth with painted outlines in the broken style of S&H. She has two upper and one lower square cut teeth.
The body is a Sonneberg style straight wrist body. It has all of its original finish except for the lower arms which have a light layer of paint, the color matches well. She is dressed in antique pantaloons and slip and a sweet antique dress, probably from after 1900. The socks and shoes are also antique. She wears a great mohair wig, too.
Loads of personality in a 19.5" tall S&H mold that is scarce and very desirable.
