This a charming antique baby doll, displayed in an antique wicker display basket, lined with original silk lining. Overall condition of basket is excellent with very little wear or soiling. Wicker is in lovely original condition. Some pieces of wicker missing on side of lid and I believe part of the wicker locking mechanism is missing. The handle is in good stable condition and overall, the presentation basket is simply beautiful. Inside, there is a handmade wool knitted blanket, with a very good repair in the center. You really have to look to find this. Baby measures 7.5" tall and is jointed at the arms and legs and head. Original body has original paint and is good condition, save for a few chips to the composition at the neck well of the body. The bisque head is lovely and has no condition issues. Beautifully painted face, rose blushed full cheeks, double chin, closed mouth, pale blond painted hair. Marked at the back of the head. I can make out the Heubach mark 7744 and Germany. Dressed in original baby clothing which includes white lace embellished gown, pink satin embroidered bonnet and jacket. The jacket does have a rust stain in back, near the hem. A very sweet display!
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" .
