SIMON & HALBIG / KR. 21" Dolly Face "55 Doll. Made in Germany - c. This is a very pretty and hard-to-find Simon & Halbig KR Dolly Face girl, size 55. She is a nominal 22" (actual size about 21") with a beautiful bisque head and jointed composition body.
The doll is marked on the back of her head Simon & Halbig, KR, and "55" at the base of her neck. She has a gorgeous strawberry-blond full human-hair wig with curls, and her pierced ears have teal-crystal and pearl earrings. She is dressed in her original antique white dress -- trimmed with lace and teal velvet ribbon tied at the waist; also slip, bloomers, stockings and off-white (newer) slipper-style shoes tied at the ankle. NOTE: Photo props not included: DOLL STAND, TEDDY BEAR, FURNITURE.
Beautiful antique condition -- from a non-smoking environment. No damage or repairs made to the doll. The head is free of chips, cracks, or hairlines.
The ball-jointed body has been repainted, but appears to be without any cracks. Her dress is very old and has some age foxing and small repairs.
Overall, a lovely and hard to find doll to add to a collection! 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.
