Here she is ..the doll that started it all !! lol...I had always wanted to collect dolls ...but was having the hardest time finding any because of where I was living..I was in a small town in Ontario and not very close to any antique stores....and I saw her advertised in kijiji ..I flew down to the ladies house ..and was stunned by this doll....she is very big and just so magnificant..she wanted $300 for her...on a fixed income at the time that was really hard to stomach ,...spending so much on a doll...so after some negotiating and really good earl grey tea..alot of stories and ( me subliminally sending a message of I must have her but cant afford it lol)...she sold her to me for $150...and she has been in my room ever since...I did have a few before her ..but her story is the best one !!...I have seen some that look a bit like her on line ..but would love to know more xoxox

    Very nice doll ! she is a Simon & Halbig Jutta, S & H, was founded in 1839, they began making dolls from 1869 to 1920 in their two porcelain factories in Frafenhain and Hidburghausen, near Thuringia, Germany in 1920 they were bought by Kämmer & Reinhardt, who continued to produce dolls until 1932.

    Simon & Halbig was known for the fine bisque doll heads and innovation in the doll industry, thus, they also supplied doll heads to many other well known doll manufacturers, that then attached to their own made body.
    Do a search on Simon & Halbig jutta mold 1914
