10" Antique c1912 Swaine & Co Character #232 Doll with Flocked Hair Cute Boy!
“Lori” is one of the best-loved antique Character Babies and this little 10” sweetie is the open-mouth version, by Swaine & Company registered 1912, Germany. In very 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 & 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.
