This beautiful German girl is S&H 1009, and she is a socket head on a kid-lined shoulderplate. She is fully dressed in all antique clothing. Her original body is kid with kid-over wood upper arms and hinge-jointed bisque lower arms. She is an absolute treasure. Layaway is always an option. Here are the details:

Head: Her bisque head is perfect with no cracks, chips or hairlines. She has brilliant blue sleep eyes and an open mouth with teeth. She retains her original blond mohair wig – thin, but I would not change it. She is an earlier model with heavy flat eyebrows and no Germany marking (pre1891). She is marked very faintly at the rear rim S (size #) H 1009 / DEP / St. The meaning of the St mark is unknown, but is not uncommon to find on this mold #. Factory imperfections: common minor mold flaws behind her ears and an occasional speckle. Signs of wear: None.

Body: Her original body is one typical of the 1009 mold. It is a leather body with kid-over wood upper arms, pin-jointed elbows and beautiful perfect bisque arms. There may be a small glue repair at one knee gusset, otherwise excellent aged condition.

Clothes: She is fully dressed in layers of all-antique clothing. We start with her cape and hat of thick plush burgundy velvet, lined with taffeta. I love the decorations on her hat! Next she wears a two-piece green silk dress with blousoned blouse and long full skirt. Underneath we find a three-piece set of camisole, half-slip and bloomers. Finally, she wears long wool stockings and black oilcloth shoes. The silk dress has a few tiny splits and small discolorations, but generally her costume is in very good aged condition.
