Antique Simon & Halbig 886 All Bisque Doll. This delightful 7 ½ all bisque doll is incised 886 S 3 H on her head. She was made by the prestigious Simon & Halbig porcelain factory in Germany. Her sweet face with a hint of a smile features multistroked eyebrows, blue sleeping eyes with original eyelid wax, painted upper and lower eyelashes, and molded upper eyelids.
Her open mouth has upper teeth. She has a replaced blonde mohair wig with center part and long curls down the back. She has a kid-lined swivel neck and pegged shoulders and hips. All of her parts are correct and original. She has nice torso modeling with defined breasts, navel, and buttocks.She is particularly desirable because of her long over-the-knee black stockings with reddish brown 4-strap boots with yellow soles. She wears an antique handmade organdy dress which appears original (could be laundered), an antique lace-trimmed half slip, new panties, and antique silk jacket with lace collar (some deterioration especially to the lining), newer straw hat with lovely antique looking trims. She is in perfect condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. She has a few light specks in the bisque and there is a small black paint smudge at the side of her head from the eyelash painting? She probably could use a bath.
She has been a part of my collection for a very long time, and I will miss her, but time for someone else to enjoy her. Beautiful all ready to display and a perfect fit for your Christmas stocking!
