I have an antique doll belonged to my neighbor in Kentucky

Customer Question

I have an antique doll belonged to my neighbor in Kentucky and I received in 1980 as I collected dolls as a young girl.
The head is marked:
"S&H" over "HALBIG over "9 1/2". She is about 22" tall with moving eyes, pierced ears and human hair. Body is jointed, not porcelin but another material. The doll is in excellent condition but I do not think the clothes are original. There are no other markings on the body . I am not sure how to find the maker of the doll. It is my understanding that halbig made the heads . Any additional information would be appreciated.
