This superb doll is being re-listed due to a non-paying customer. About this rare mold number 22 K * R Doll: This offering is for a very rare, early Kammer & Reinhardt model 22 character boy baby. At 24" he is a very large doll due to his super chunky body (five piece wood and composition body, with bent limbs). This early "22" marked doll is an early model of the hard to find 122 model. The doll is clearly marked "K * R/22/Germany/10" on the back of his head.( Note the nearly identical appearance of the #121 K & R dolls that are much easier to find, being more common, than #122 dolls). The doll is further marked "20 7 28" on the rim of the head. Doll heads, with this mold, made later, had the numeral "1" added, thus having the #122 model.
HEAD: The doll's bisque head is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, hairlines, factory flaws or restoration. Note the exceptional detail of his facial characteristics. His brows are finely feathered and his large sleep, steel blue eyes show his spunky personality. His wig is vintage and is likely original. It is in very good condition and has no hair loss that is apparent. The upper and lower lashes are very finely painted. His nose is slightly upturned and has red nostril dots. His open mouth is a great big smile, showing two upper teeth and a trembling tongue. The blushing is natural and without rubs.
BODY: His 5 piece, bent limb body has the original paint and is in very good condition. The stringing is perfect, so he holds a pose like a "good boy." There is minor chipping of paint at the neck opening, but nothing serious. This is a body made to last, so it has aged well.
CLOTHING: His clothing is vintage. He wears a very old cap made of yellowish beige silk, with red trim. His adorable suit is wool and made in the Edwardian fashion. It has no moth holes or odors and is in exceptionally good condition. Baby wears very old shoes that are secured with a button. Despite their age, the shoes are sturdy and completely intact. The socks are very old and in fine condition.
This is a doll with a smile that is infectious. Every time I pass him, I find myself smiling. Who can resist this spunky boy with personality plus. As always this offering is fully guaranteed to meet your expectations.
