OVERVIEW: This interesting character is Heubach 6969, a glass-eyed character doll, made for Cuno and Otto Dressel. She is in overall excellent condition. Please read my blog for more information about the relationship between Heubach and Dressel. She has perfect bisque, a wonderful all original body, her original wig, original unders and a nice antique dress. Layaway is always an option. Here are her details:
HEAD: Her bisque head is perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. She has a closed pouty mouth and blue glass sleep eyes. Her original wig is terrific with long braids pulled back into a red velvet bow. She is marked at the rim 6969, then Germany / 3. There is a tiny incised 67 and an even tinier 29 stamped in green. Examination: There is one tiny insignificant wig pull and no other signs of wear. This is a very fine head with no factory imperfections.
BODY: Her original composition body is in wonderful condition. There are no repairs and the finish is entirely original. The body is marked with Dressel’s Holz-Masse symbol.
CLOTHES: She is fully dressed and her unders appear to be original. She is wearing a darling antique dress of blue and white stripes. The bodice is bousoned with a series of vertical tucks. The skirt has a panel of little girls gardening. The dress closes with hooks and eyes. Underneath, she wears a full-length slip and bloomers that are probably original. Her socks are also antique and fit perfectly, and she is wearing hand-made red leather shoes.
