Offered is this unusual German Wax Baby Doll, I am not familiar with this style doll at all, so will describe as best as I can.
The doll itself measures approx. 14 1/2" tall. Her original blue flannel coat and gown are about 2" longer than she is. Her face is made of wax and is a half face. It is attached to fabric at the sides and the rest of her head is stuffed. Great little original lacy bonnet over it. The body is cloth with wax over paper-mache lower arms. There is a tiny paper affixed to her lower leg that has german writing on it. On the front of her gown, there is a little sewn on heart that says " Wax Tauflinge with voice box 1870 "Little Babe". It is sewn on, I am thinking this was most likely added by a museum or collector at some point in her life.
While she is not the prettiest doll I have seen, she is unusual and all original.
