ANTIQUE SIMON & HALBIG KAMMER & REINHARDT DOLL Lovely Dolly Face with RARE Flirty Eyes. Bisque Socket Head with Composition Body 21 inches. Wonderful Fur Trimmed Coat & Hat Lace Adorned Dress. BACKGROUND This doll was produced by the effort of two of the great early German doll factories owned by Kammer & Reinhardt and Simon & Halbig. Ernst Kammer, the doll artist of the partnership of Kammer & Reinhardt, most likely designed this doll’s head, which was then produced by Simon & Halbig. This business arrangement began after 1902. In 1908, Kammer & Reinhardt trademarked the names “The Flirt” and “Der Schelm”, and in 1910 a Butler Brothers catalog featured flirty eye French-jointed sleeping dolls. (Source: Simon & Halbig Dolls, The Artful Aspect by Jan Foulke). MARKINGS Her head is marked “Simon & Halbig KR”, along with the size number 53 at the base of the neck. This marking, which does not include a mold number, was used for Kammer & Reinhardt’s dolly face dolls, according to Jan Foulke. HEAD This beautiful old doll has a charming bisque face with a creamy pink complexion, rosy cheeks and orangey-red lips, which. Are enhanced by her charming open mouth smile with four white teeth. She even has a faint little dimple in her chin. She has blue flirty and sleep eyes, along with. Finely painted upper and lower lashes and feathered eyebrows. Her soft curly blonde wig looks lovely with her complexion and her attractive outfit. The wig appears to be fairly new. BODY Our flirty lady has a composition body, which is jointed at the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips and knees. It has been repainted. All of her joints are working, and she holds a pose pretty well. CLOTHING Our wonderful K&R wears a very stylish soft textured (slightly velvety) coat, which is lined and which has white fur trim on the collar and sleeves. She also sports a fur trimmed hat with a netting on top and a spray of long, black feathers on one side. We perched the hat on her head for our photo session, but adding a hat pin would be a good idea. Under her coat, our dolly wears a satiny, pleated, lace-trimmed dress. Both the dress and coat seem old but probably not antique. Under the dress, we find a charming cotton chemise with lace at the hem, an embroidered flower at the collar and the initials “N C” stitched toward the bottom (see photo #7). Antique lace-trimmed bloomers and newer shoes and socks complete the ensemble. SIZE Our lovely lady measures 21 inches. No flaws that we could see on the face and the rest of the head. The wig is a bit fly-away. The flesh color on her eyelids is gone – see photo #7. The body has been nicely re-painted and is also in fine shape. There is some wear at the hip joints and a little paint loss on the fingers. There are some very minor spots and surface scratches in a few places. The coat is in very good condition, as it is hat, except that some of the netting on top is torn. The dress has a couple of stains on the back but is otherwise in very good condition. The undergarments, shoes and socks are all in very good condition. We will include a doll stand. Please review our photos, as we consider these a part of our description of condition, and feel welcome to ask questions. This fashionable lady, dressed for a night on the town, is absolutely charming when she looks at you from one side or the other. She’s a show-stopper!

By Simon and Halbig. Back of the head is marked S& H 1249, D. Germany Santa, 7 1/2. Is 21 inches tall. Bisque head and composition body. Beautiful working blue sleep eyes. Parted lips with teeth. Pierced ears with earrings. Possible chip in the crown of the head, possibly happened during production. No hairlines or cracks when inspected with a flashlight. A little “rough spot” in the finish near the crown of the head, likely to have been a production issue like kiln dust, completely covered by the wig. A bit of uneven color on the forehead (covered by wig). The compo body has the normal chips, scratches, discoloration for an item with this age. I do not believe it has been repainted, but it is often hard to tell, if a repainted body a deal breaker for you, please know that I never guarantee that there has been repainting as I believe it is sometimes impossible to tell! There are a couple of black marks on the leg and arm, perhaps paint. I have no clue if the body is original to the head, they appear to fit well together. Pretty cotton dress is likely modern, probably Gabriella Couture. Dress has some light staining (like foxing) , most noticeably on one shoulder. Nice silky undergarment dress. Cotton pantaloons, missing 1 button, little tear, staining. I believe the wig is more modern, there is no pate. She comes from a smoke free environment!

She doesn’t have any chips or cracks to her bisque head but someone did touch up a little paint on some of the flaking of paint around the rim of her head. This can actually be removed by the new home if you want but it is all beautifully covered by her wig and bonnet. She has blue set glass eyes, open mouth with teeth, brushstroke eyebrows, rosy cheeks, accented nostrils, and a beautiful quality blonde mohair wig. She is on a ball jointed composition body – the arms are slightly different color than the body but it isn’t noticeable with the clothing. I just love her colorful outfit that includes a full set of undergarments and socks and shoes. This doll is a lovely and sweet girl from a smoke-free environment. 1910 We have not undressed this sweet girl. She is waring her original dress that is melting.

This is a rare find! Gorgeous still in the original box!!! ” antique Germany 21inch bisque doll “BEBE COSMOPOLITE” – The dolls head is clearly marked “SIMON HALBIG” and under that “GB – and the body is marked HEINRICH HANDWERCK. Wow, with all those names I had to do some research! Here’s what I learned (who knows if it’s true or not but seems to make sense because most of these dolls do not have GB marked on the head along with Simon Halbig) – So, the story goes like this: The “BEBE Cosmopolite” Simon Halbig doll head was commissioned by George Borgfeldt (to his specifications). Then Borgfeldt had them put on Heinrich Handwerck bodies. The dolls were then distributed by Handwerck from his many distribution branches (three in Germany, one in New York which opened in 1881, and 4 others known to have been opened in other countries) This version of the BEBE Cosmopolite doll is believed to have been produced in 1890. Later, in 1913, a smaller 14 version of this doll was produced as a promotional doll due to paper doll versions of this doll being so popular. Soon after that Simon Halbig again producing this doll (but not commissioned by Borgfeldt) and the GB mark was not included on those later Simon Halbig doll heads. This little beauty comes in her original box, which still has some of the original straw filled paper stuffing rolled up under the head and foot areas. It would be my guess that this doll was never played with as the tag is still on her dress and her body has a “new sheen” to it and is still very stiff (look at pics). I removed her hair and head cap to take a picture of the inside eye area. Her wig is super soft and blond with a hint of strawberry blond tint (some pics look darker) and has retained the majority of her ringlets and curls (the last pic is a side view of the wig), there is a little pink ribbon on each side of her hair. Her face paint is nice, great eyebrows and eyelashes, a nice mouth with teeth, and rosy cheeks. Her clothes are a bit yellowed but crisp and nice – no tears that I can see. Everything looks really good to me but I’m not a doll expert, I don’t have bright florescent lighting or magnifiers. She will be a fabulous addition to someone’s collection. She will come with her clothes (dress and slip) laying on top of her in a large baggie (I don’t want to risk dressing her and accidentally tearing something) and she will be wrapped extremely well with her head stuffed to prevent the eyes from breaking or coming loose. It’s nearly impossible to find an antique doll in such nearly new condition- especially one that is still in their original box! She measures aprox 21 inches without her wig on. Please reach out to me if you have any questions! And please see my other auctions – and take note that I will be listing many dolls over the next couple of months.
