She has a bisque socket head on a five piece, bent limb composition body. Big brown glass eyes peer out from behind painted lashes and are accentuated by her rosy blush. Her wig is an antique light brown mohair, matching the feathered brows well, and she has an open mouth with two upper teeth and a tremble tongue!
Dressed in a confection of an antique cotton baby gown, which definitely doesn’t skimp on the little details--embroidery, lace trim, tucks, and insertion lace all make this ensemble shine. Beneath the gown is a matching slip, a white cotton diaper and white crocheted booties. To top it all off, she has a beautiful off-white bonnet with a sheer silk lining and silk ties. If you fear there’s a chill, she comes fully equipped with a cream and pink crochet sweater!
MARKS: Made in Germany / J.D.K. / 257. / 51.
CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips or restoration and has a delightfully smooth texture. Her character expression is well modeled and her painting skillfully done. The body does have some touch ups and age wear. The crier is not functional. Her eyes are set, although they are on a rocker and so could be made to sleep if desired. Overall, this cute baby is an excellent choice for any collector.
