This 10 inch tall baby has his original five piece crude bent limb baby body. The head has a molded bonnet similar to the Heubach Stuart baby of the same period. The molded bonnet has blue molded bows. The head has intaglio painted eyes and an open/closed mouth with a molded tongue and two upper teeth. The back of the head is incised, “22-7/0.” The doll was manufactured in the late 19th or early 20th century by the Recknagel porcelain factory of Thuringia, Germany. The doll head is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The line that shows on the top of the head in the photos is the mold line. The body stringing is somewhat loose but I did not want to disturb it as it is the original stringing. The baby wears an antique cotton check romper. I like to display these Recknagel babies next their Gebruder Heubach contemporaries.
