Marks: Simon & Halbig S&H 152 7 (head) Heinrich Handwerck Germany (body). Condition: generally excellent. Comments: Simon and Halbig, circa 1910, the doll was inspired by Rosa Luxemburg (1870-1919), the Polish-born German intellectual and social reformer whose short life was spent advocating the rights of the common man and woman, and who was considered a heroine in her time. The portrait doll was likely presented at the 1910 Leipzig Spring Fair in the important display of suffragette dolls which highlighted the event. Since it was not created for child play purposes, it is certain that very few examples of the doll were ever created and it is very rare. Value Points: the rarity is rivaled by compelling modeling including deeply defined eyes, strong chin and aquiline nose, enhanced by choicest bisque and painting, original wig, body, body finish, and original costume.
