Description of Kammer Reinhardt Doll for Sale

This is a beautiful example of an antique Kammer Reinhardt Bisque head character face Doll.  She is 18 inches tall and is a fine example of German doll making.  The head is mold number 121 and was made in Germany from the teens through the early 1920's.  The head was molded and fired by Simon & Halbig based on a master model made by Kammer Reinhardt.  She has sleep eyes and a wobble or treble tongue.  She has a desirable character face with the most wonderful dimples.  She is on a less often seen straight legged slant hip composition toddler body and is wearing her original antique dress and slip and has a pair of crocheted replacement booties.  Her mohair wig is factory original. She is very special as usually this head is seen on a bent leg baby doll body. 

Marks

Condition of Doll for Sale

The bisque head is perfect with no chips, cracks or repairs. The toddler body has not been repainted and has minimal paint crazing and no paint lifting.  There is minimal wear to the joint surfaces.  There is damage to her left arm with significant chipping to the paint and some wear to the composition below the paint.  The composition and wood parts are not broken or split (see pictures below) You can click the pictures to see close-ups of the damage.

On her left waist there is are paint chips and some damage to the underlying composition.  This was caused by an overly tight doll stand used on her at some time in the past.  The damage has not compromised the structure of her torso.  (see picture to the right).  Both of these problems could be easily repaired by a professional doll restorer resulting in a doll with a near perfect body appearance. 

The dress and slip are factory original.  The panties, shoes and socks have been replaced.  The replacement crocheted booties are especially fine. The dress closes in the back with a pin.  There is no button closure.  There is some wear and fraying to the placket in the back.  (see close-up in the slide show).  

In addition to the wobble tongue the mouth has two perfect little teeth.  In the wide shots of her face it appears that one tooth is missing.  I have checked the doll and both teeth are present.  See blowup to the right
