Simon Halbig 1079 Antique Doll
This great antique German doll, circa 1900, is in excellent condition. Her head is incised S & H 1079-8 DEP.
Her bisque is in excellent condition with beautiful painted lashes and lips. Her brown mohair wig compliments her
great coloring. She has large oval shape blue glass sleep eyes with hair lashes. Her mouth is open in a petite smile
with four tiny upper teeth.
Her ears are pierced, but no earrings present. She is dressed in an antique sailor costume from Europe.
The top is separate from the skirt and made of cotton with white accents. The jacket buttons in the front while the skirt buttons on the side.
Her undergarments, a one piece as well as a slip are vintage and may be original.
Her white crochet stockings are newer as well as her black slip-on shoes.
Her body has the original finish. One finger on the left hand has been reattached, but repair is not noticeable.
Note in photo a chipped area on left arm top, and I have also noted a chip on right side of right knee.
This doll is a nice size at 19 inches. I have noticed a "speck" over her left eye on the picture...but it was only a piece of lint. Thanks.
