Description of Doll for Sale
This is a cute instance of a celluloid or biscaloid baby from the 1920's and was intended to be imported to England. The head and body is made from a heavy celluloid or biscaloid material. . The face matches celluloid dolls made by Kammer Reinhardt (K & R) who were big producers of biscaloid and celluloid dolls in this time period.
The baby is in good condition and is wearing a new replacement knit outfit and bonnet.
The head is marked with the word "Foreign" followed by some unreadable numbers. The "Foreign" mark is intended to allow the doll to be imported into England under the Merchandise Marks Act of 1887. The law required either the country of origin or "Foreign" to be marked on goods imported into England. The "Foreign" mark may have been used by K & R to avoid English prejudice against Germany following the first world war.
