This offering is for a rare 12" doll by Simon & Halbig marked “1159.” The bisque swivel head is on its original S.F.B.J. French body. The swivel head has been lighted and is free of damage or restoration. The quality of the bisque is very fine with feminine and crisply molded details, including her prominent blue stationary eyes. The doll wears a vintage French golden blonde 100% human hair wig that came with the doll and was identified as original. It is in beautiful condition and could be easily changed to an upswept style for variety. The head is marked “1159// Simon & Halbig//S & H// 4”, although the number “4” is very faint and could be another number.
BODY: The French S.F.B.J. body has its original paint, with a lighter colored paint that covers joint wear. There are also some areas of paint wear, but there is no damage to the sturdy structure of the body. The only restoration is the addition of a celluloid hand that matches the size and appearance of the composition hand. Overall, the body is in very good condition.
CLOTHING: Dolly wears an antique reproduction white cotton dress decorated with lace and blue ribbons. Her shoes may be original. A second dress is equally stunning and has a more modern style. The dress is made of a light copper colored silk fabric that is covered on the bodice, skirt and cuffs with fine vintage lace. She also has her ORIGINAL blue cotton long sleeve dress which is still in very good condition.
