Beautiful ~ 25" Antique German Bisque Schoenau Hoffmeister 1909 Doll ~ Original For Sale
Please view my other listings. Over the summer I will be saleing vintage and antique dolls and doll items.
Thank you for viewing my sales. I appreciate your interest and offers. Please offer with confidence and check my “Seller’s response” for assurance of accurate representation and description of my items. It has been about a year since I have sold because I am a teacher who sells mainly on my summer break. For the most part, I sell dolls and horse figurines, so if these are of interest to you, please check back often over the summer to see my sales.
DESCRIPTION This sale is for a beautiful German bisque head doll with a composition body. She is about 25" tall. Her outfit appears to be original, which includes a beautiful blue dress, white slip, and matching white one piece slip/underwear. I gave her the newer hat. She has big, beautiful blue eyes, rosy cheeks, open mouth showing 4 upper teeth and blond hair. She is marked: S H / PB (in a star) / 1909 / 7 1/2 / GERMANY. She is gorgeous!
CONDITION: No cracks or breaks in the bisque head. Her original body is in excellent condition, but has a 2.5" craze line on the left side of her torso. Her original blond hair is missing a lot of hair, particularly in the back. Her original eyes are loose in her head and one eye broke off of the rocker. I glued the eye back onto the rocker and to the part of the eye that was still left on the rocker, then I used some tissue paper to hold the eyes in place for her photos, so they are still loose. (I will wrap the eyes separately for shipping.) The blue dress is lightly soiled in spots with some scattered brown spots and a few minor pin sized holes. Near the right lower side of the dress is a larger sized hole. Missing one button on the front near neckline of dress. One of the remaining buttons is coming loose.
IMPORTANT! PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE FOLLOWING:
