Sonneberg Belton

14" Sonneberg "Belton" darling, looking like she just traversed the avenues of Paris, rather than the back roads of Germany - fine details include a perfect bisque head with very nice painting, brown paperweight eyes, pierced ears, and a full and quite lovely antique wig.
On an eight-ball jointed body that remains in exquisite condition, this lovely young lady wears a beautiful silk brocade dress in the French taste, complete with a matching hat, and antique shoes.

Baby Peggy
Louis Amberg & Company

In the past, we have offered the always-adorable "Baby Peggy" Montgomery, the silent film actress, as a swivel head model on a composition body, so this shoulderhead version of the child star doll we find to be a bit unusual.
The perfect bisque shoulderhead is marked “1924 Germany, L A & S-N-Y” features a very expressive face and was manufactured for the firm of Louis Amberg & Son. Additional features include dark brown glass sleep-eyes that are highlighted by feathered brows, and a full brunette human hair wig styled in a classic bob.
On a pink-tinted gusseted leather body that remains in good condition overall, it is fitted with jointed composition arms. Baby Peggy wears a darling white cotton dress with lace and cutwork accents, while pink silk ribbons add just a touch of color. Vintage shoes and a darling lace cap complete the look.
Baby Peggy stands 18-1/2" tall.

22" Toddler by Kley & Hahn, mold 167 with incised mark, and K&H Germany. On a jointed toddler body, this little sweetheart has brown sleep eyes, an open/closed mouth and a beyond adorable expression. Her full mohair wig is original, as are her dress, pinafore and underclothing.
Circa 1912.








22" Character Baby from the Kley & Hahn firm, impressed K & H Germany 568-12. Details of this fine fellow include a perfect bisque socket head, an open/closed mouth with a molded tongue and two upper molded teeth, blue glass eyes that are now set, nicely modeled pronounced ears and molded and brush-stroked hair.
His composition, bent-limb baby body does have the original paint finish, although there are scattered repairs, including fingers on both hands.
The very nice antique baby clothing he wears may help explain his gleeful expression – especially nice is the crocheted cap which keeps him snug!
Oh yes – almost forgot, a voicebox in his torso allows him to say his very first word – "wah"!

Looking like a million bucks in her cocoa silk ensemble, and marked Made in Germany 13, this Closed-mouth Kestner has the most amazing moist bisque! When you see her face to face, you will agree!
Further details of this child, who stands just under twenty-one inches, include a poured bisque head that is lovely, but not perfect due to a faint hairline on her upper forehead. In addition, there are very expressive brown glass sleep-eyes, beautiful lip, lash and brow painting, and a skin wig that features long blonde curls.
On a fully-jointed Kestner composition body showing normal wear to the original finish, there is a re-glue to a finger on her right hand.
Cocoa silk faille is the magic ingredient of her lovely dress, with cut velvet, lace and silk velvet adding sumptuous dimension. A chocolate brown straw hat adorned with matching faille and a plume could not be a more fitting choice to crown this desirable German classic.
