Hertel Schwab model 131, adorable character baby boy, 10 inches tall. By now it must be abundantly clear how fond I am of Hertel Schwab boys. Here is another sweet little guy. Fabulous face with iconic wavy eyebrows, painted eyes with highlights, an open mouth with tongue. Wears a very well made classic two piece linen outfit (French seams, beautifully mitered corners...) knee high socks and wonderful leather baby shoes in excellent condition. Shoes are original and possibly socks. I have made the beret for him to keep his bare little head warm and add a bit of panache. His bisque socket head is in excellent condition with factory flaws: a prominent mold line, a flattened area on top, and a small firing crack behind each ear. This charmer has a bent leg composition body that has seen better days and received much play- cracking, repair, and repaint, especially to hands. I have seated him in a wonderful swing that's in my retail shop: it's the perfect size for him. If you are interested in it, let me know. Priced according to condition, and a really endearing baby.
