Here is a rare vintage baby doll with composition head and limbs on a cloth body with working squeaker. It is marked on its flange neck with: ‘O. V. 1 1/2 ‘, an unknown makers mark. We date the doll to be made in the early 1950’s. Notice the very precise and exceptionally fine detailed moulding of the head and limbs! The composition is so strong one could mistake it for tin!

This lovely vintage baby doll measures 15 inches / 38 cm over all and 11 inches / 28 cm sitting. Baby doll sits perfectly on its own.

The open mouth shows two teeth and has a quivering tongue, the blue paperweight sleeping glass eyes work magnificently, only some of the eye lashes on the right eye are missing. The cloth body is still the original one, in fine preservation, apart from some old water stains on the back as you can see in the photographs. The hands show some traces of colour abrasion, and on the left hand sits an old retouche. Astonishingly the voice apparatus sitting in dolls belly does still work when doll is turned.

Vintage baby’s clothes are not original, the sweet crochet romper was made by me and the baby dress might be as old as the doll!
