18 In. Simon Halbig Bisque Shoulder Head Doll, Closed Mouth, Blue Glass Eyes, German Gusseted Leather Body - image 1 of 16

This beautiful lady was made by one of Germany's greatest porcelain factories, Simon & Halbig, and is incised on the front of her shoulder plate, "S H 6." Her gusseted leather body is shapely and has bisque lower arms with detailed nails and pink on the top of her hands and across the crease on the underside of the fingers. The extraordinarily beautiful face will attract the most advanced collector with her tantalizing blue eyes encased in upper and lower painted lashes, pale and perfect bisque, closed coral shaded lips with a darker coral outlining of the mid-lip, coral blush and perfectly aligned feathered thin brows. She has pierced ears but no earrings and no chips around the holes. Her head has a French cut and cardboard pate. The beautiful blond mohair wig is a most appealing replacement with the hanging curls and waves. She is an early doll without a mold number.

Her clothing is made of 100% antique fabrics and laces, if not antique. The blue silk is used as an accent against the off-white tiers of white laces and tucks. The front has handmade cloth covered antique buttons. The tie belt ends up in the back with streamers of the most beautiful lace and pinked edges of the blue silk. She is wearing all antique underclothing, including two slips and pantaloons, all trimmed in antique laces and/or embroidered trim. She is wearing antique blue socks and nice brown side-button leather boots.

This doll will qualify for the full 6 months no-interest layaway. I have posted the amount of shipping based on today's postal fee chart and insurance fees. The actual costs of shipping may be more based on USPS fee chart at the time of shipment.
