Little Woman doll. Simon and Halbig 1160 German antique doll:
Bisque shoulder head with a delicate oval face. Chocolate brown eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, brown eyebrows, softly blushed cheeks, closed mouth. Her chestnut-brown upswept Gibson Girl style mohair wig has loose curls down the back. Bisque lower arms and legs, joined to a cloth body. Her upper body has very old repair tape below her shoulderhead (have not tried to remove) see close up photos. She has brown painted shoes.
Her adorable antique costume :
Ecru lace edged ruched bonnet decorated with cream and pale pink ribbon rosettes, tied under her chin with baby blue ribbon, a long sleeved ecru dress with lace edged cuffs. It has a lace yoke, with ribbon trimming and two tiny pink roses, full-length ecru lace overlay from the waist, lace trimmed under garments - slip and pantaloons. Condition of the costume is consistent with age, as shown in the big close-up photographs. There is a small tear in the lace at the hemline at the back of her lace over-dress and some age marks on her outfit, mostly on her undergarments - back of the underslip and one pantaloon hemline has a stain I have not attempted to wash off. IMPORTANT - Please see all the close-up photos for full condition details.
