I BOUGHT IT IN 1982
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a charming doll. Such antique dolls are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The doll was made by Simon & Halbig for Kammer & Reinhardt. It has a charming face and appears to have the original clothes.
The body is made of wood, composition and papermache. The appraisal depends on the head being without any chips, hairlines or cracks. It was made in the early 1900s in Germany.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online antique dolls auction, where I believe the doll has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the doll. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
