Darling 11.5” Sonneberg in Antique Floral Dress and Original Wig - image 1 of 15

When I first saw this face, I fell in love! What a delightful expression on this beautiful doll. She is an exceptional example of a Sonneberg doll. Those tender lips and her big deep brown set eyes are masterfully depicted in a squat round face with a healthy blush. The overall expression is simply timeless and priceless. Add to that her original Sonneberg body and her gorgeous blue couture frock and you've got an award winner! If you are particularly fond of German Girls for the French Trade (and honestly, everyone should be!) then snap up this lovely rare character child before she is gone. We absolutely adore her.

***This sweet girl is available on layaway. Take up to eight months to pay! Give us a call anytime at 718-859-0901 to hear an in hand description of her condition and/or to discuss layaway terms!***

She has a bisque socket head with big dark brown set eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, brown feathered brows, a closed mouth with accented lips, and pierced ears. She stands at 11.5” tall on her original straight-wristed wood and composition Sonneberg body, and wears her original light blond mohair wig.

She is dressed in a lovely antique white cotton dress, with a pin-striped weave and a delicate printed blue and green flower pattern. The bodice has two tucks on either side, with lace trim at the collar and sleeves, and a dropped waist with a pleated skirt. Underneath, she wears an antique white cotton full slip with a windowpane weave bodice and an eyelet lace skirt, and a pair of antique white cotton pantaloons with lace trim. On her feet are a pair of white knit socks and modern-made brown leather shoes. On her head is an antique floral silk bonnet with a pleated brim with pale blue trim and lace underneath.

MARKS: 117

CONDITION: Excellent. Her bisque head is perfect, free of any cracks, chips, hairlines, or restoration, with excellent modeling and painting depicting a sweet face. Her original set glass eyes are aligned well in the head. Her original body retains much of its original shiny finish, with some areas of wear and touchup, particularly to the joints. Her costume is in great condition, and fits her well. WOW! Tuck her in a little corner of your heart and love her forever!
