This 6 gal is a stunner but has some issues. Regardless, her face is just perfection and has that French look. She is a very rare all bisque, German and possibly for the French market dating from about 1890.
Unmarked but possibly by Simon & Halbig or Kestner. Please note that her torso has been entirely repaired. This seems to be an old repair.Her antique high-necked dress hides this well. She also has old repairs to each leg. I have not seen any damage on her arms or head. Her dress is antique, her sweater is either vintage or antique, and her wig is a newer artisan-crafted one of luscious mohair.
Shes one of the prettier all bisques Ive had and displays well even though there is damage. I have more antique toy and doll items listed so please check out my other auctions!
