Exceptional example of this mold in its early form with high impression detailing. Simon and Halbig made different 719 heads for three purposes: early ones to put on French bodies and sell to the French market, 1890 molds for Edison Dolls, and later molds for the regular German imports. This particular doll is an example of the early French intentions. She has extraordinary deep blue eyes with white sparkling flecks, NOT your regular paperweight eyes. I have kept this doll in my private collection for her eyes alone.
She has early square teeth, and beautiful vivid facial painting. Her French body has issues, some of the original paint has flecked offcommon occurrence for French bodies.Some fingers have been repaired. She has tiny flecks on her earring holes. She will be offered at a fraction of her true value, because she has a hairline crack on the back of her head, and a factory crack on the inside of her rim, on the back. These cracks are stabilized and wont progress. You will never notice nor care about them.
She will come naked, without a wig and without clothing. Ready for you to dress and customize to your own desire. Please study the photos as they are meant to be a large part of the description.
