Doll News Spring 2020 - 88

Standing 21-inches tall, this German
bride by Simon & Halbig, mold number
949, was produced in the late 1880s.
Her bisque socket head is on a
bisque shoulder plate with a closed
mouth and brown glass eyes
with an upswept brown mohair
wig. Her kid leather body with
bisque forearms is an unusual
body construction for this mold
number-it's usually seen as a
socket head on a ball-jointed
composition body. She is
marked: "S 9 H / 949". Her
ivory silk dress with a tightly
fitted bodice has a vertically
pleated bell-shaped skirt with
a full bustle and a 20-inch long
train. The silk fabric is shattering
along the warp threads, but
the dress still remains intact.
The ever-popular wax
blossoms top her
embroidered lace
veil and she
carries a full
bouquet of
the same.

Nineteenth century doll
manufacturers don't seem to have
chosen bridal gowns, or at least
ones in white or shades thereof, to
garb their dolls. At least earlier in
the 19th century, this is probably for
the above-mentioned difficulty in
cleaning white. Unless the doll comes
with provenance telling us that this
is a bridal gown, or unless it comes
with a veil, it's impossible to know.
The ones that have survived were
more than likely dressed in replicas
of actual people-sized bridal gowns.
Following are a few dolls in the
UFDC Museum, dressed in shades
of white and with veils, that have
survived dressed as brides. From
a 1850s French papier-mache head
mechanical attributed to Alexandre
Theroude to a 1910s French bisque
head character by Lanternier, here
come our antique doll brides.

Re-dressed sometime in the mid-20th century by Etta Bartlemay, whose
collection was one of the first donated to the UFDC for their then-fledgling doll
museum, is this 31-inch French character known as "Favorite" by Lanternier &
Cie and dated circa 1900-1910. Her bisque socket head on composition balljointed body is marked "Fabrication Francaise / AL 7 Cie / Limoges." She has
arresting gray-green glass eyes and an open mouth with teeth. Her off-white
satin full-length gown is in a style closer to the decade before, with long leg-ofmutton sleeves, studded with pearls and with a deep flounce of wide synthetic
lace at the hem. Her long brown human hair ringlet curls are topped by what
appears to be an adult-sized veil attached to a white lace-trimmed tiara.
