10 inch Antique c1912 Swaine and Co Character number 232 Doll with Flocked Hair Cute Boy.
Lori is one of the best loved antique Character Babies and this little 10 inch sweetie is the open mouth version, by Swaine and Company registered 1912, Germany. In excellent condition with rare original intact flocked hair, Baby’s perfect bisque head is incised 232. 1. (only teeny bits of flocking have flaked off).
Blue glass sleep eyes are surrounded by the finest painted lashes under dashed brows to match the hair, cheeks are round and rosy, and the open mouth gives the face the cutest expression. Even though Baby is sewn into the rompers, the body is jointed at neck, shoulders and hips, with original paint and no repairs.
Hand knit cream wool romper with pink collar and stripes, and matching cap with pompoms over the ears works perfectly for either a boy or girl, and baby comes from a non smoking environment.
