I hate the flowery hyperbole that often is in these auctions. Therefore, just a simple description. This is a beautiful 22 Heinrich Handwerck/Simon Halbig.She is tightly strung, ready to display sitting or standing. Eyes, head, body are original, clothes are not. 3 at the neck line. I believe the head is original to the body. The ears are pierced, and she has white bead earrings. The open mouth has 4 teeth. She has functional antique glass blue eyes, original to body. As so many of these dolls do, she has a dimple in her chin. The square on the back of the head is glue from where the wig was attached. She is wearing an auburn synthetic mohair wig that has a few light wisps of bangs and a braid down the back. The paint is chipped and missing around the thigh balls, knee joints.
There is a chip on her chest wall, left forearm, and on her right buttock cheek. There is this big square patch on her left side that has paint missing, shows the wooden peg in the body. I have no idea about this. The right 4th finger has been repaired. Fingers and toes have usual red lines.
The body is stamped on right buttock cheek. She is wearing what appears to be a vintage well made homemade fine light weight white cotton dress, with lace trim that has a mauve satin ribbon through it.
With a ribbon flower at the side waist. The bottom is a deep squared off scalloped embroidered trim There are puff sleeves, lace yoke. It is a really pretty feminine dress. She has repro white cotton socks and reproduction mauve shoes that so totally match the ribbon on the dress. She doesn't have a slip.She has an antique 2 piece chemise/panty set that button together. They work really well with the dress. PLEASE ASK IF YOU WANT MORE PHOTOS OF AN AREA. I will try with my limited photography skills. I PUT IN A guess as to WEIGHT AND DIMENSIONS OF PACKAGE. FOR PACKING I USE CLEAN PLASTICS THAT CAN BE RECYCLED, NOT NEW PACKING MATERIALS. THESE MATERIALS MAY BE PLASTIC MILK CARTONS, NEWSPAPERM EMPTY FOOD PACKAGES, ETC. THE HEAD IS WRAPPED IN EITHER NEW OR USED BUBBLE WRA. PLEASE ASK FOR INVOICE PRIOR TO PAYING.
