Here comes a large Alt, Beck & Gottschalck character baby, made 1912 and with magnificent bisque head, mold number 1361.
Our antique German baby doll measures 45 cm / 18 inches sitting and 60 cm / 23 ½ inches overall.
As you can see in the photographs, the bisque head sits on a composition sitting baby body.
The head is marked on the back: “ABG 1361 / 58 Made in Germany 11”.
Our large Alt, Beck & Gottschalck baby has fully functional brown glass sleeping eyes, eye lashes are painted. The eyebrows are feathered, the nostrils completely opened, mouth is open with movable tongue and two front teeth showing. Antique baby has the sweetest expression and an adorable double chin. The bisque head is perfectly in order as you can see in the photographs. The old ash blond wig is made from artificial hair and fine.
The composition body has some traces of age as is shown in the photographs, on the right foot and an old hairline on the left leg.
Alt, Beck & Gottschalck baby wears a two part undergarment, a splendid antique English baby dress (with a little bit of wear) that I bought in London on Spitalfields antique market, years ago, before it was turned into another fancy food folly nobody has any need of *sigh*. The satin head band was added by me. The old baby shoes are of finest kid, one has bit of wear on one side.
All in all, this large antique German baby doll is an adorable sweet darling in excellent condition!
