DELIGHTFUL ANTIQUE 12" BISQUE HEAD LEIBE & HOFMANN (GERMANY) L & H 4/0. DOLL

This beautiful antique Leibe & Hofmann (German) bisque head doll dates from circa 1882.

She is marked on the back of shoulders:

L & H 4/0.

She measures just 12 inches in height and has an open crown (fired) bisque shoulder head and (original)cream coloured kid leather body with Ne Plus Ultra hip joints and gusseted knee joint, bisque forearms andcloth lower legs.

Her bisque shoulder head is flawless and exquisitely beautiful-it has nohairlines, no rubbing, chips or other damage. Her colouring is truly exquisite, virtually 'factory fresh' in appearance, with norubs, fading or marks to mar her beauty.
Her beautifulblue-spiralled glass eyes are fixed/do not sleep - but this is correct/how she was original made.She has very nicely defined (original) eyebrows, andexquisitely long delicately painted (original) eyelashes,she also retains her originaleye and nostril accent dots.
She has an open mouth with pretty 'cupids bow' lips (her lip colour is perfect and unrubbed/unfaded), sheretains allfour original teeth (upper lip) in perfect undamaged condition, and has an enchantingly dimpled chin!

She retains her original cardboard pate. Her beautifulgolden-brown mohair wig isoriginal to her, and in superb condition,beautifully soft, clean and shiny with no loss or fading.

Her wig is firmly glued-on, and does not appear to have ever been removed - however as she doesn't have 'sleep' eyes, this will not cause any problems when she is shipped/posted to her new home . . .

Her bisque forearms (lower arms) in very good original condition, and she no chips or damage to her fingers/thumbs.

Her cream coloured kind leather body is a little dusty and has a some age related soiling, and she has a very old repair to the leather part of her left arm (see photo) but this cannot be seen when she is dressed. Both of her cloth feet also have very old stitched repairs, but these are completely stable, relatively minor and cannot be seen when she is dressed for display. Apart from these old stitched repairs, the rest of herkid body retains very goodtight original stitching andvery good even firm stuffing.

Her delightful clothes are almost certainly original to her (with a couple of exceptions, noted below).Her clothes are all in very good clean condition.

She is wearing antique white full-length split-leg pantalletes and an antique white vest.Her antique ivory pintucked underskirt with whitework scalloped hem has some yellowing/discolouration around the waistband and top - but this could be improved by a gentle hand-wash!

Her long-sleeved antique white dress has a delicate lace-trimmedhigh collar with matching lace trim around the hemline, and is fastened around with waist with anantiqueroyal-blue grosgain sash/ribbon.

Her little antique-in-style chatelaineisn't original, I have made it especially for her - it consists of a tiny watch, a ring of keys and two seperate little keys, hung onto antique 1920's blue and white silk twisted cordwith a little bronze decorative floral-shaped buckle.

She is also wearing seperate deepantique lace collar with her dress, held in place by the sash.

Ivory-colouredshoes (antique-style reproductions) trimmed with rosettes made from scraps of antique victorian lace, and vintage cream coloured 'silk' stockings.

Her pretty brown mohair wig is tied with tiny antique blue twisted cord, an antiqueroyal-blue grosain ribbon bow, scraps of antique pale blue lace and beautiful antique cream and ivory wax flowers.

Her minature bronze reticule/bag is not original - it is an antique-style reproduction that I've made for her.

She is also wearing a little white antique cape trimmed with lace, and an absolutely delightful antique white work bonnet trimmed with lace.

The'doll-sized' hatpin securing her bonnet was made for her (by me)from antique materials.

THISADORABLE LITTLE ANTIQUE BISQUE HEAD DOLL IS EXTREMELY SWEET

SHE HAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BLUE EYES & HER COLOURING IS EXQUISITE

SHE DISPLAYS BEAUTIFULLY & WOULD BE PERFECT FOR CABINET DISPLAY
