German doll artist Annette Himstedt sculpted and designed many dolls for many years, ceasing production around 10 years ago. Her limited edition dolls represented a wide variety of children. I have several Himstedt dolls–this one is Lucy, a baby doll. Lucy has glass eyes, a mohair wig, vinyl head, arms and legs, and a stuffed and weighted cloth body. She was made in 2005, #274 out of an edition of 713 dolls.

Each Himstedt doll came in an original outfit designed by Annette Himstedt. I have Lucy’s original outfit packed away, and she is currently wearing a real baby outfit. With her weighted body she can sit up nicely by herself.
