KR / Simon & Halbig 34. Original Antique Doll - Made in Germany. Bisque Head / Composition Body - Stands Approx.13.5" Tall - Marked: "Simon & Halbig KR Germany 34 From the estate of collector ELEANOR TILVIKAS BOREK, here is a gem of a doll for the discriminating collector. She is an amazing find, and in wonderful condition... The prettiest KR I have ever come across.
She has a beautiful bisque socket head with lovely facial coloring, and nice large, clear brown sleep eyes that open and close with ease. Full auburn brows, a sweet mouth with four nice original teeth, pierced ears with earrings, and delicate facial features. Her wood-and-composition body has its original finish. She is ball-jointed and possesses all fingers and toes.
She wears a replaced brunette wig with bangs and a slight flip at the ends. It's a nice wig style for this German bébé. She comes to you in a delicately embroidered organdy dress with lace accents and added embellishments, and a matching bonnet. She wears matching lace bloomers and slip, long white stockings, and antique leather shoes.
The following props are not included: DOLL STAND. Beautiful antique condition -- from a non-smoking environment.
Her body is in like-new condition, with original finish as mentioned. She is nicely strung and holds a pose well. There is a kiln crack at the rim as pictured (does not extend down to become a hairline).Otherwise no chips, hairlines, repairs, or repaint noticed after careful examination. She has a mold imperfection on her right forearm, as you see. She wants to be yours! IMPORTANT: Besides the noteworthy issues mentioned above, EXPECT any antique doll (bisque/composition/leather/china/wood) to ALSO have: (1) SIGNS OF AGE - for example: toned/crazed/chipped composition, minor wig pulls, loss of "hair" lashes on bisque heads (if they had them), not-so-tight stringing, etc. (2) MINOR CONSERVATION WORK by previous owners/collectors - for example: reset eyes in most cases!
, repairs to wig, repairs to clothing, touch-ups on composition/finish/paint, etc. Any MAJOR issues -- hairline crack, total repaint, etc. - would be itemized above, but these normal age/conservation details are not.
They are to be expected. I'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER. If you live in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, or U.These countries have more flexible Priority Post options, but it depends on the size and value of the item you're purchasing. And provided the items can travel safely in the same box. Opens in a separate window/tab. As often happens, it's the few bad apples out there who ruin it for the rest of us. Not knowing what they're doing. And then, when they realize they've ruined the doll, they return it saying it was defective.
BUT HAVING SAID ALL THAT.. I do bend over backwards, attempting to disclose any noteworthy condition issues I can find or think of.
But these are antique and vintage dolls -- so, please understand that they won't be in brand-new condition. There will always be some minor indication of their age, and it would be impossible to itemize every single pinhead-size stain on the outfit, or hairline scratch on the body.Please expect these types of conditions with old dolls. IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
