AW Special German Doll

Beautiful antique bisque headed composition body doll by Adolf Wislizenus, this lovely beauty has deep brown sleepy eyes with eyelashes still intact, open mouth shows four exposed teeth with creamy bisque complexion and just the right amount of color at her cheeks and lips. Her ball joint body is of composition and holds pose well. She is wearing a blonde replacement wig and vintage dress. The doll looks very much like a Simon Halbig and its quite possible the head is of their making as they were one of the four suppliers of heads for AW.
