Lovely Simon & Halbig 1078 With Beautiful Eyes:
This is a lovely Simon & Halbig 1078 with the most amazing pale blue expressive eyes. She dates from 1905.
Her eyes open and close perfectly, all of the original eyelid wax is intact. There are top and lower painted eyelashes and raised multi stroke eyebrows. Her open mouth reveals four original teeth. She has pierced ears.
I guarantee her head has no hairlines, chips or restorations. It is clearly impressed on the back - 1078 - Germany - HALBIG - 9 1/2 - S&H.
She measures 20 1/2 inches (52 cms).
She is on a good early Simon & Halbig body which retains its original paint and high sheen. The tiny finger on her left hand is broken, otherwise all her other fingers and toes are all good. There is some wear tothe openings where the legs enter her body and a bit around her arm openings. It is a good strong quality body.
Her original blonde mohair wig is very worn.
She is wearing a dark blue cotton dress which has been extensively embroidered with black thread. Underneath she is wear delightful underwear of broderie anglais lace over blue cotton, petticoat and pantaloons. Her bonnet is victorian. Her shoes look to have been hand-made.
An exceptionally pretty 1078.
