27

Condition: generally excellent. Marks: K*R Simon & Halbig 119/Baby 62. Comments: Kammer and Reinhardt, circa 1912, a continuation model from the firm's art reform series, the use of the English language word "baby" in the head markings indicates its intention for the American or English market; the scarcity of the model suggests either its failure as a commercial endeavor or its exclusive production for a specific store. Value Points: extremely rare, few examples of this "119/Baby" model are known to exist, this example with finest quality of bisque and sculpting, original body and body finish.
