This is an extremely are circa 1920s CRYING Dream Baby marked AM Germany 375. All original.Beautiful bisque head with blushed eyebrows, painted upper and lower lashes, original wax on lids, rosy cheeks and painted open mouth. Baby's working sleep eyes are brown. Celluloid hands in nice original condition with no broken fingers. Original cloth body with some aging like a couple of small rust spots and a teeny worn hole a bent knee. Original cloth diaper, original socks, slips, and original organdy dress and bonnet. The dress appears to have the original sizing or starch and there is one worn, small area at the ruffle, near hem. The organdy bonnet has some wear in the back and is lace embellished with original ties. Some oxidation to the organdy, giving it a true vintage, aged appearance. Some wear to lace on bonnet. Baby's head has no damage, but a couple of areas near base of hairline which appears to be a little bit of soiling which may wipe off. I have not tried. Baby measures 11" long, with a head circumference of 10" around. Her head is rather loose, with some fraying to the cord which connects it to the cloth body. A very sweet baby doll, with a very unique crying face.
I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all. Please note, if an item is returned within our 3 day return window, your payment will be returned, minus a 3% restocking fee. We do not issue refunds for shipping.
Layaway is available. A 20 percent non refundable deposit will secure the item and we will work with you regarding the length of the layaway. We are fairly flexible. No refunds on layaway.
Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid. USPS shipping rates (both domestic and international) continue to increase. I ship based on size of box (anything over 12" is considered oversized and charged a surcharge by USPS), weight, insurance and priority, first class or express options. I will refund any excess you have paid. I do combine shipping for multiple purchases. Please do not purchase an item to "reserve" it and block if from selling to others while you ponder your purchase. A purchase order is a commitment to buy the item at the price listed and not a pathway to put an item on "hold" .
