Antique Simon & Halbig 1079 dep, 33" tall

This big, beautiful girl is in excellent condition. She is 33" tall and has sleep eyes, painted lashes, raised brows, pierced ears, and an open mouth with four perfect teeth. The lovely bisque head has no chips or cracks. The body is composition and wood and all original; it has not been repainted. The hands and feet are in good condition, with no loss of fingers or toes. The wig is a replacement, as is the pate; the wig is perhaps thirty or forty years old, human hair, made in Hong Kong, a dark brown with reddish lights. Her glass sleep eyes are also brown, and they open and close properly. The lids show the original wax, which is in good condition, and with painted upper and lower lashes, this doll would not have had applied lashes. Her bisque is lovely, with one pepper spot on the end of her nose.
The doll is dressed in a period day dress and slip; neither are original to the doll, and given her size, were probably originally a child's garments. The underwear is simple, but it is also antique. She also has vintage socks and shoes; while they are old, neither is as old as the doll. The knee socks have a few small holes near the tops, where they are not visible under her dress.
