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 a Herman Steiner doll. Marking is a little hard to see, but it reads: MADE IN GERMANY / HERM STEINER / 12/0.( I am only guessing on the "HERM" in particular. It is light, but I can make out pretty clearly the "M" right before the "Steiner". It also matches the markings in one of my identification books, "Doll Values" 5th edition, by Patsy Moyer, page 172.) She is a cute 8" size. Beautiful face with brown sleep eyes, rosy cheeks, and open mouth showing 2 upper teeth. Original brown hair. Sweet original christening gown with matching bonnet and diaper. She is also wearing a pair of pink knit booties. (IMPORTANT. PLEASE READ. sale is only for the doll. Bear not included. Please see my other sales if you are interesed in the bear.) Please carefully view all photos and ask questions if needed.
CONDITION: I consider her to be in excellent condition. No cracks to bisque head. Composition body is in very nice and clean condition. I see a small nick on her compo body at the back neckline. Little pencil marking on her back. Clothing in beautiful condition, too, but has the natural "aged" look - no longer stark white. (From her photos, I discovered that there is a spot of paint on the inside corner of her right eye. It matches the paint that is on the back of her eyelids, so a spot of the paint must have ended up on the corner of her eye. I never would have noticed it without the close-up photo. Very minor and not noticable in person.) Wig/hair is loose and I will stuff her head with tissue for protection when I ship her. Very pretty doll!
