11 inch Antique English Poured Wax Child Doll Baby Jesus in Swaddling Clothes sometimes were given as a Christening Gift's. This one has a halo behind the head that is metal so it may represent the Baby Jesus.

These wonderful early wax dolls were often given as Christening gifts. This one measures 11 inches tall and looks like the work of Pierotti. Wax baby has blue glass eyes, rooted blond hair, and closed mouth. Wrapped in elaborate swaddling outfit with antique lace and silk ribbon and lying on a silk cranberry pillow with two pillows under the head. There is a bit of wear to the silk ribbon and possibly to the lace.

There is a wire that is cloth or paper covered in the back that allows this darling doll to be hung on the wall. Early and wonderful and in very good condition from a smoke free environment.
