Description of Doll for Sale

Here is a great example of an antique flapper doll made in Germany by Simon and Halbig.  The doll is 8 1/2 inches tall and is on a 5 piece flapper body with painted shoes with white painted socks.  The head has a clear S & H and Simon Halbig mark. The rest of the marks are hard to read. I cannot see the mold number which is usually at the rim of the head opening and cannot make out the Germany and the size number that is usually lower on the neck.  I have compared the face to marked Simon Halbig heads and she closely matches the 1078 mold.  The position of the marks matches known 1078 heads and the use of the white socks is most often seen on the 1078 dolls. 

She is wearing and antique dress with lace trim and matching lace trimmed bloomers .  The clothing is likely original to the doll.  She has glass sleep eyes that work smoothly and the original antique mohair wig.  The 5 pierce composition body has it's original finish with painted on shoes and socks.  The 1078 mold was made from 1900 through the 1920's.
