Large K * R 126 Character Baby SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
This is a large Kammer and Reinhardt 126 character baby with her original Kammer and Reinhardt chunky body, original short wig and pate. She is a large 21 1/2". She has an adorable character face; these faces modeled from live children were a specialty of the firm. The bisque head was made by Simon and Halbig and it is marked: K*R 126 Simon & Halbig. She has brown sleep eyes, with the original factory set as can be seen in the photos, and two upper teeth and molded tongue. Body is in beautiful shape with all her splendidly shaped fingers and toes intact, showing very minor wear. She has beautiful clothing, hand made, antique lace, dress, hat, underpants and lacy slip, white stockings and leather shoes. She has been in my personal collection for many years and I have loved her--I have just run out of room. She originally came from an estate many years ago. Facial painting is lovely on this doll. Her bisque head has no breaks, repairs or hairlines--there is a tiny mold mark on her on her forehead that is so small, you have to look for it and perhaps can be seen in one of the photos as the photos are magnified. On the photos, one can see where in the factory the body was separated and a voice box (not working) inserted with a wire mesh in the back--this was a common thing done by Kammer & Reinhardt in the factory. She was made in Germany, c. 1915.
