DOLL MARKED 69 - 12X GERMANY HANDWERCK

by KAREN DELORENZI

I HAVE THIS DOLL AND IT IS MARKED 69 ON LEFT SIDE OF NECK (IN BACK OF COURSE) AND ON THE RIGHT SIDE IT HAS 12X. BELOW THAT IS GERMANY. AND BELOW THAT IS HANDWERCK.

SHE LOOKS GOOD TO ME AND I TRIED TO DO RESEARCH AND FIND OUT SOME INFO AND HERE I AM NEEDING SOME HELP.

I TOOK HER HAIR OFF TO TRY TO SEE WHAT OTHERS HAVE TOLD ME ABOUT THE INSIDE OF HER HEAD WOULD BE DIFFERENT IF SHE WAS REAL?

I HAD LISTED A 1329 ORIENTAL SIMON AND HALBIG DOLL NOT TOO LONG AGO AND I JUST SWORE SHE WAS REAL, BUT I GOT LOTS OF MESSAGES FROM OTHER EBAYERS SAYING SHE WAS A REPRO.

SO MY QUESTION(S) ARE WITH THIS DOLL, IS THE HEAD A REPRO AND/OR THE BODY OR BOTH? ON THE BOTTOM OF HER FEET THERE ARE INITIALS, I'M NOT SURE IF IT IS EG OR JEG. I COULDN'T GET ANY INFO ON THE INITIALS. WHAT DO THOSE MEAN? MAYBE SHE IS A REPRO AND THAT IS THE PERSON THAT RE DID HER?

I HAVE 7 OR 8 OF THESE DOLLS AND SO FAR AFTER THE ORIENTAL DOLL AND NOW LOOKING AT THIS DOLL, AND ANOTHER SIMON & HALBIG 10 I AM NOT SURE ANY OF THEM OR GENUINE DOLLS.

SO DO MOST REPRODUCTION DOLLS HAVE THE ORIGINAL HEADS AND THE BODY IS REPRODUCTION? I ASK THAT CAUSE I SEE A LOT OF HEADS ONLY BEING SOLD.

WELL THAT'S ABOUT IT FOR THE MOMENT, BUT I AM SURE I WILL HAVE MORE QUESTIONS. I JUST DON'T WANT TO LIST SOMETHING WITHOUT KNOWING MORE ABOUT IT. I DO APPRECIATE THE HELP. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. KAREN

Dear Karen,
You should be very confident your doll is original. Not repro. Most of repro dolls have no signature or if there is it is the name of the person who did it.

According to mi your doll looks very original.I have an eye for this. Not a pro but fan of those creatures. :))And watched so much dolls in the eBay so I'm sure can recognize the original form imitation.

The repro dolls looks more softly in face.They have not this special expression of Germans. Even they could be poured in the same bar.

If anybody has such.Except this if somebody make a repro from the original. Everything is possible.

The marks looks a little bit lighter.You should check yourself. So when you listed you could say anyway that the head is original with repro body. Probably..:))
