Adorable, Tiny Antique Heubach Character Baby
This adorable, little guy measures just 6.5" long from his head to his toes. His head is bisque and the body is a 5 piece composition baby body. The only markings on the head are 2/0 or 2/6, I can't make them out clearly, and the word Germany underneath the numbers along the bottom of the neck. There is a marking on the back torso of the body, which is impressed into the body. The marking looks to be the Gebruder Heubach sunburst mark and the word Germany underneath.
The face on this little guy is just wonderful. The eyes are side glancing, intaglio eyes with an open, laughing mouth with 4 tiny upper teeth and 2 little lower teeth.
The head is in excellent condition, free of chips, cracks or hairlines. The clothes are sewn onto the body so I can't remove them completely, but what I can see looks to be in great condition, all fingers and toes are intact.
I don't believe the outfit to be original, but it is difficult to tell for sure as there is some age to the outfit and was clearly made for this doll.
He's an adorable little character baby, and just the right size for any collection.
