This set of three all bisque babies, circa the late 19th or early 20th century, are all of German origin. Each is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The largest baby is 2 ½ inches tall and 2 ½ inches long with a cubby naked body. One of the babies is just learning to crawl. At 2 inches tall and 2 ½ inches long, he wears a molded and painted white blue trimmed gown. His cute little pudgy bottom is exposed as he attempts to move on his hands and knees. The third baby is 2 ¼ inches tall and 1 ¾ inches long. He is in a sitting position and eating, what I believe to be, a piece of bread. He wears a white molded gown. All three little bisque figurines have molded and painted facial features and blonde hair. The fingers and toes are delicately and intricately modeled. Each is a wonderful example of the artistry of the German bisque figurine and doll makers. These little babies were probably produced by Kestner or Simon & Halbig. I can see them in a vignette with their German or French fashion mothers and in a doll house nursery.
