When you see that big, dramatic bow, you know it's turn of the century! Any connoisseur of antique photos knows that little girls have loved their bows for a century at least- and this character baby is no exception. Though still so young, she's already quite a little fashion plate with an ice-blue bow that perfectly matches her sparkling sleep eyes and complements her vintage sable locks. She's cozy and stylish in an antique, cream silk gown with the most delicate lace trim and a sweet crocheted cardigan to keep her warm. Bring this cunning little charmer home to your arms today!
Bright, lively, and ready to shine, this George Borgfeldt baby comes ready as ever to be added to the collection. This adorable character baby stands at an impressive 24" tall, with a cute expression that just begs for attention. High-quality bisque makes up her complexion, with detailed painted and modeled features that bring her to life, along with a set of bright blue sleep eyes. She's on her original cryer body in fabulous condition, and is adorned in a sweet costume that includes an antique silk baby gown that sets the bar for presentation. With no negative issues aside from typical wear, this beautiful baby is destined for greatness!

Bisque socket head with beautiful deep modeling and expert painting, with big blue glass sleep eyes, framed by painted upper and lower lashes, feathered flyaway brows, and an open mouth with two upper teeth and a lightly-dimpled chin, with lightly blushed cheeks. She wears a vintage human hair wig in a short style, in a chocolate brown. She is on her original antique composition bent-limb baby body, with the original cryer mechanism (non-functional). The body has its all original finish, and stands at a full height of 24" tall.
She wears a pale cream silk antique gown with insertion lace and lace trim, underneath a cute cream wool vintage chemise with blue trim details. A blue bow sits atop her head to add a splash of color, while she also wears an antique full slip in a white cotton with a button-up back, a pair of white cotton underwear, and little cream wool booties with blue insertion ribbon that match the chemise.
MARKS: G B 15 [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Excellent! She has gorgeous, pale bisque with expert and delicate painting of features, crisp and deep modeling of an absolutely beautiful face, pleasant, subtle color. The bisque head is absolutely free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines. The glass eyes sparkle and are with great pupil alignment, and sleep well. It should be noted that the eyes have been professionally re-set to sleep; they are still the original eyes! The composition body has its shiny original finish, and is in fantastic overall condition, with only the most minor of age wear here and there, which is typical and to be expected. The stringing is tight and sturdy, allowing the baby to raise her arms and sit securely. The hands are great and original with the original finish, with only some slight wear to the thumbs. The costume is great, with no issues other than the typical and minor wear. Overall, she's a beautiful baby you cannot deny!
