All original doll, clothing, packaging, paperwork, certificate & box. Annalisa is (probably) the ultimate Himstedt Doll. She is huge, a life-size little girl made to the size of an average 7 year old. Annalisa a very beautiful and natural doll from the 2004 series of dolls who were designed to look like they have been outside playing all day. She is a very very large doll at 121 cms tall or 48 inches.
I have tried to get across just how big she is in the photo's, I have included photo's of her sitting in a regular chair, at a regular table, reading a regular book. Yes, of course she can read! Her head circumference is 21 inches and her incredible sany blonde hair is semi-hand knotted human hair. Very thick and very luxurious! Her incredible eyes are mouth-blown glass in a wonderful grey/hazel colour, hand made in Germany and quite incredible.
She has tiny light brown/blonde inset eyelashes framing her eyes. If you know Annette Himstedt dolls, or have seen them in person, you will know that this doll is one of the very best they ever created and will simply blow you away. This doll will not disappoint you. If you dont know these dolls in the flesh, you are in for a wonderful surprise. They are not by any means your run of the mill dolls, they are made with incredible attention to the smallest of details.
The clothing is beautifully made with hand made buttons and a myriad of other small details. The fabrics are absolutely perfectly suited to the dolls, quality and finish is second to none. The hair is all natural human hair and is lovely to touch.
It is plaited into two plaits with lots of stray fly aways and tied with cotton yarn. Annalisa is made in vinyl and has jointed legs at the knees, arms that are jointed at the elbows, upper arms and shoulder. Her neck swivels and rotates side to side and up and down. She has a vinyl upper torso and a cloth lower torso and hips.
She sits really well but due to her size and considerable weight, is difficult to get standing. However, she is so much fun to have sitting in all kinds of places, you wont be able to resist having her around. She sits so well on human size chairs and looks incredibly real. A checked linen dress with lots of little pockets.
A denim blue hooded coat with button front and drawstring details on the sleeves and pockets. Leather boots with signed suede soles.
She comes with her signed certificate of authenticity and is numbered 334/377. She will be securely packed in her original box and her outer shipper. Please note the box is HUGE! I have never seen this doll come onto the secondary market, especially in the UK and especially in this perfect a condition.
