Here I have to offer a Gorgeous German bisque 17 1/2 inch Simon & Halbig 1159 Lady Doll in the S&H manner of the Gibson Girl, c.1910. She has a bisque socket head on a marked Original “Handwerck” fully jointed composition and wood lady body with bosom and slim waist and slender arms and legs. Body has some cracks along both leg and side area (see photo). They are not going anywhere, but can be stabilized with glue. The body is sturdy. She has brown sleep eyes with painted lower lashes, factory lashes on one eye only, feathered brows, open mouth with upper teeth, one missing, pierced ears, Original light brown mohair wig in original Gibson style up swept do. She is wearing the most Beautiful Edwardian style Gown, made entirely of delicate handmade antique lace with a melon color sash around the waist, and has small mother of pearl buttons for closure. The pantaloons are antique as well. Her Fashionable Edwardian Hat is trimmed with silk melon rosettes, tulle, and flowers to match her gown. As with all fashionable ladies, she carries her white leather gloves trimmed with a melon floral design also to match her gown. The white antique doll shoes she's wearing are to die for. They are leather, with side snap closure and have diamond shape buckles on front top of shoe. These shoes are in near mint condition. The knee hi socks are ribbed cotton. The doll's bisque head has No hairlines, cracks, chips, repairs and is damage free. This Exquisite Simon & Halbig 1159 Lady Doll is just Beautiful, and would be a Wonderful addition to anyone's antique doll collection. She comes from a smoke free home.
