Offered is a wonderful 14.5" character baby, circa 1909, made by the Germn firm of Kammer & Reinhardt. Known as the first doll in the firm's art character series, where they were making dolls that resembled real children. Mold number 100.
This doll has superb facial modeling that is deep to show off the cute little folds of fat that would be present on a real baby! Baby has a solid dome head with molded and painted hair. Blue intaglio eyes provide lots of depth that show off the modeling of his eyelids. Original composition body, has that "washed off" look that occurs on some of these antique bodies. Structurally very sound with some finish wear to the back of fingers and one thin crack on right hand/lower arm. Head is in excellent condition without damage, including hairlines. Great coloring. Back of head is incised: 36 K*R 100.
Baby is dressed in the most wonderful antique flannel or lightweight wool cape with lots of silk! Including ruched silk around the back "hood" and all along the inside edges of the cape. I almost kept this for a larger child doll! But am selling with him, since he came with it. Underneath, is a very long white cotton baby doll gown, white cotton baby doll slip and diaper. Booties complete him.
He displays so wonderfully with this cape, that it has taken me over 8 years to list him for sale!!
