When I first saw this face, I fell in love! What a delightful expression on this beautiful doll. She is an exceptional example of the Sonneberg dolls. This gorgeous Sonneberg has a delicately molded closed mouth, sparkling blue glass eyes, and a beautiful blond updo, on a swivel head in a bisque shoulderplate, on a wonderful kidskin body. Add to that her gorgeous pink dress and pearl jewelry, she will surely be the star of your collection!

And she is also available on layaway if you need more time to pay for her. She is definitely worth the wait.

She has a bisque socket head on a bisque shoulder-head, with blue glass set eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, thick feathered brown brows, a closed dainty mouth, and pierced ears. She stands at 15” on a kidskin body with bisque lower arms and gusseted joints and wired elbows. She wears her original blond mohair wig in a gorgeous updo with an attached plaster pate.

She is dressed in a gorgeous pink dress, with pale blue ribbon trim at the collar, sleeves, and skirt, with lace applique and trim on the skirt; underneath is a matching underskirt in white cotton with a pink hem. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton chemise with lace trim, half slip with Broderie Anglaise, and pair of pantaloons. On her feet are a pair of rayon socks and pink satin slippers with pink ties. Tucked into her hair are white silk flowers, in her ears are a pair of earrings with round and teardrop-shaped faux pearls, and around her neck is a black velvet choker with a gold-tone and faux pearl upside-down-heart shaped pendant.

MARKS: 154 or 134 [incised, back of head, difficult to read]

CONDITION: EXCELLENT! The bisque swivel head, bisque shoulder plate, and bisque lower arms are free of cracks, chips, hairlines, or restoration, and the head features delicately molded and painted features. The body has been reattached to the shoulder plate, but is otherwise in excellent condition, with expected age wear. The costume is in excellent condition, with almost no age wear. A very sweet closed mouth Sonneberg! A real darling in the perfect cabinet size with the sweetest pouting expression! A SUPER DOLL!
