VC7830SO: 33" Simon Halbig
This incredible and impressive antique Simon and Halbig doll is incised SH 1079 DEP 15 Germany on the back of her bisque head. She has been in my collection, stored away for about 15 years. Her bisque is flawless, peaches and cream coloring. Pierced ears with antique earrings (some color or blush loss to one lobe--see photos). No hairlines, cracks, etc.. Expertly pained painted eyebrows, lavishly painted upper and lower eye lashes. Blue sleep eyes. Rose blushed cheeks, with open mouth and teeth. Original dress with silk pink ribbon sash, very elaborate batiste, styled with lavish layers of lace and tucks. Antique stockings, antique shoes with pom pom accents. Original curly strawberry blonde hand tied mohair wig which is quite long and in good condition. Original pate. Antique straw hat accented with antique pink flowers. Original body with original glossy finish, typical wear. The only issue is she arrived to me with the setting for her sleep eyes dislodged. I had no one available to reset the rocker, so just tucked tissue in her head. Please be aware that if you want her eyes restored to sleeping, you will need to reset the rocking system. No damage; they just dislodged in the shipping process to me 15 years ago. I have accounted for this and a discount is already reflected in her retail price. She is a beautiful large, impressive doll wearing an elaborate antique white work dress. Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid if you pay promptly. You also have the option of waiting for me to re invoice you with the proper shipping once the item is packed and ready to ship to your destination. International customers, be aware of parcel size limitations in your area--she is too large to ship to countries that don't allow a package with length and girth under 108". A limited layaway is available. A non refundable deposit of 20 will reserve her for you and we can work out the details of the length of the layaway. No returns on layaways. I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues.
