At 27" tall this girl is like a real child. The Simon & Halbig company made such beautiful character like dolls starting in the 1880s. She has the solid domed head we often call Belton style. She is a closed mouth version with a pouty expression, but to me it almost has the start of a smile. She has dark brown paperweight eyes. The body is a straight wristed Sonneberg type body. When I got her it had been repainted. After much work the overpaint was stripped to reveal the original finish. The legs are lighter in color but are the correct type with the straight upper legs. She . The bisque is free of hairlines, damage or repairs. She has dark brown paperweight eyes. The eyes have roughness to the surface, but they are original. She is a gorgeous example of the 949 and quite a large version so she will look like a real child in your collection. She is being sold without clothes, shoes or wig so you can have fun dressing her. In this larger size she can wear little girls clothes.
