This sweet little child might be considered a boy but it is a hard call. It’s an old Josef Original named “Now I Lay Me”. The little angel is dressed in white pajamas that are decorated with tiny blue dots and enhanced with gold trim even around the open flap at the back. The little feet and toes are pale pink. With hands together and eyes closed it looks like the angel is saying goodnight prayers. The angel doesn’t have wings but is adorned with a beautiful gold halo. On one side is the foiled label that reads; “Now I Lay Me” and on the other side is the California Josef Originals foiled paper sticker. It’s difficult to make out what is incised on the bottom but it does look like it has a 1953 copyright. This is the mate that goes with the “Down to Sleep” angel.
It measures about 3 3/8” tall and is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage. The labels are also in very nice condition with minor wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
