16” Poured Wax Iinfant 1870’s glass eyes inserted hair

In excellent to mint condition, with incredible inset cobalt spiral glass eyes, this is one of the dearest poured wax babies, in her unbelievable original outfit. The shoulderhead has a molded chest; head is slightly turned to the left, with the finest dark blonde baby hair inserted into the purposely-darkened scalp hair-by-hair. Features are hand-painted: dotted brows, lashes, eye lid lines, nostril dots and rosy closed mouth give Baby a most pleasant expression. Baby's lower arms and legs are also poured wax, tied through the body without brass grommets. Her linen body is stitch-jointed at shoulders, hips and knees so she sits well – the knees are still stitched together from the factory. Baby's original gown and underclothes fit with perfection, with tucks, feather stitching on eyelet bodice lower front panel, and dainty lace around neck and sleeves, measure 28" from the shoulder with twill tape-synched gathers across the bodice and waist. Underneath she wears a pique diaper, wool flannel bellyband, sleeveless under-wrapper, wool flannel full slip, and crisp cotton full slip with lace eyelet matching the dress. The bellyband and under-wrapper have Baby hand-written. Her tiny bonnet is Valenciennes lace lined in silk. Definitely an exquisite not-to-be-missed presentation.
