Orsini marked “Copr. By, J. J. Orsini, Germany” 22" tall
This very rarely found character is the picture of happiness. Her wide smile and sparkling eyes make you smile. She is 22" tall and is marked "Copr. By, J. J. Orsini, Germany". She has open and close dark blue eyes with light brown feathered brows. Brown shadow can be seen above the eyes. The baby's nose is broad and the mouth is very wide and narrow with the edges of the top lip turning up at the cheeks. She has two upper teeth and a molded tongue. She wears his original short mohair wig which is in excellent condition. The head is made of a low fire bisque sometimes called biscaloid. There is no damage, cracks or repairs. She has a flange neck which attaches to the cloth body. The cloth body is clean and without damage. The limbs are composition and do have some surface crazing. There is no repair or repaint but there is some surface peeling on one arm. The baby is dressed in cotton vintage underwear, a full slip and a pink dress. The stockings are also vintage and are pink. Dolls designed by Orsini are prized by collectors. Most of the examples found are all bisque. This baby is very seldom found and is particularly desirable because it was part of the "art movement" when artists and designers were encouraged to create dolls with realistic expressions.
