Here comes a beautiful large antique Bye Lo Baby, designed by Grace S. Putnam, and produced in Germany around 1922. Our baby here has a flawless bisque head and is marked on the neck: Copyr. by Grace S. Putnam / MADE IN GERMANY / 137(?)3/4B”. The bisque heads for Bey Lo Babies were produced in Germany by several manufacturers, the number points to Alt, Beck & Gottschalck as the maker of this head. The blue glass eyes have a fully functioning sleep mechanism.
The cloth body is original, a so called “frog” body, with a mute voice apparatus in its belly. The hands are made of celluloid, please do observe the restoration on one finger of the right hand!
The sole right to sell those famous Bye Lo baby dolls, made only for the US market, lay with Geo. Borgfeldt & Co in New York.
Our vintage baby doll here is 40 cm / 16 inches tall over all an in exceptionally good condition.
Around the neckline a thread secures the socket neck head – I will remove the head for transport and fill it with soft material to protect the eye mechanism; you will have to remove this material in order to get the mechanism going again and re-attach the head!
Antique Bey Lo comes with knitted baby shoes, a darling vintage rosebud baby dress, and an old lace bonnet.
