GORGEOUS!! She is the medium-sized Tiny Tears made in the 1950s, measuring approx. 15" -- the size most proportionately close approximating the size of a 'real baby' for a young child to hold -- this is the baby Tiny Tears with the hands-down rubber body and RARE GREEN eyes. She was made circa 1951 or 1952. This baby is NOT to be missed if you want to own a piece of doll history ... Her coloring is exquisite.
Tiny Tears is appropriately marked on the back of her neck 'American Character'. Her coloring is classic and lovely. Beautiful brown molded hair has only a slight rub at the very back; the face is a rich, warm HIGH COLOR that only the earliest dolls have -- original blush on her cheeks still there -- brows and under lashes well-defined and clear. Pretty green eyes with full brush lashes, are even and thick; well-fitted. EXCELLENT Tiny Tears who has been stored for over 65 years -- all alone and waiting for you to take her home!
The rubber body on a Tiny Tears is the biggest source of concern when making the decision to purchase. This baby's rubber body is in near MINT condition -- strong, with only the slightest intermittent CRAZING... Still SQUEEZABLE and sweet. Rubber has some slight variation in coloring on one leg; all fingers and toes are there -- no fear dressing and redressing this baby -- she is ready for play!
After examining your new baby carefully, you will delight in her original clothing: EARLY ISSUE and RARE pink dimity stripe dress and matching bonnet; original white cotton full slip; white single-button knit undershirt, "Big Girl" panties, VERY RARE flannel floral pajamas; and original pink-and-white booties. All items pictured are included.
Baby's dress is in MINT MINT MINT condition... still crisp and fresh right out of her layette box.
A wonderful Tiny Tears doll and her complete layette!
