This lovely doll was part of my mothers collection. She not only collected but repaired antique dolls for others. This one was my favorite. I named her Rachel.


Her dress is antique fabric but not as old as the doll. It looks very pretty on her though.

Simon Halbig
by: Elizabethkiwi

I like your doll, and like a lot of collectors, Simon Halbig are among my favorites.

I have a 570, such a cute face, almost pixie like. And the 550, well, just beautiful. I also love the 99 and the 79 molds, what gorgeous expressions, so serene.....And some of the heads have larger eyes, almost almond shaped, I've noticed some in the 1079 and 1078 molds....

I believe a lot of these were produced for the French market too. Although way too many sellers on eBay are fond of putting "produced for the French Market" on their dolls.

That's probably true of Simon Halbig heads with french bodies, but to put that phrase on a Simon Halbig head with a German body is pushing hope too far.

What are other opinions on this?

I've been collecting for a very long time, but certainly I'm not an expert.....cheers everyone, from Elizabeth in New Zealand
