Rare Heubach Character Head~Scowling Child with Nightcap
Because of the damage, there are no marks, but I believe this to be a Gebruder Heubach piece. The coloring on this little head is just beautiful. He has deeply blushed cheeks, intaglio blue/grey eyes and fringes of brown hair. His cap is highlighted in peach and the tassel is gilt. The modeling on this piece is really wonderful, with crisp features. The bits of white you see on the sides of his face are bits of plaster residue from the gauze and will come off easily with a damp cloth.
He measures about 4" tall including the plaster gauze. It appears that the remnant of the original shoulderplate underneath the gauze is about an inch shorter, so the actual measurement may be closer to 3".
He's an adorable little thing and will make a cute doll with a bit of restoration.
