Precious 9” Antique Hertel and Schwab German Character Baby Doll
This delight of a character baby really shows off the excellence of German doll making. Her bisque is creamy and smooth, and her painted features complement an excellent mold. This little lady seems to giggle in delight at the thought of being picked up by a loving parent. She is 9” tall, almost the size of a real infant!
She has a solid dome head with excellent modeling and painting of features, with incredible details in the molded chubby cheeks and chin. There is wonderful attention to detail in her painted hair as well. The characteristic Hertel and Schwab grey-blue glass eyes complement her dark painted lashes. Her eyes are fixed in place beneath painted brows, and she has an open mouth with two upper teeth, ready to gurgle a morning greeting. Her cheeks have a delicate blush which highlights her beautiful eyes. She is on a five piece bent limb composition baby body.
This sweet girl wears a light blue crochet sweater to keep off the chill over a white cotton floral printed baby dress that has a lovely little lace trim. Underneath this she has a cream cotton diaper and cream cotton undershirt. Her bonnet is a white eyelet lace confection with ruffles, pink ribbon inset and blue ribbon ties. She is simply to die for.
MARKS: 210/151 CONDITION: Excellent condition! She is free of any hairlines, or cracks, chips, or restoration to her bisque head. The painting and modeling is excellent, and the glass eyes are in excellent condition, but they are set. The composition baby body is also in very good shape with no restoration, just some age wear particularly to the hands.
