He has a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, faintly-airbrushed blond brows, and an open mouth with two upper teeth and a bisque tongue. He has molded painted blond hair in a cute short style, with a curly forelock. He stands at 25” tall on his original antique bent-limb composition baby body.
He wears a cream and pink knit sweater, a matching cap with pom pom on top, a white cotton antique baby gown, and an antique white cotton slip underneath.
MARKS: Vanta Baby LA&S 10 DRG Made in Germany [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: His bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Head has top-quality modeling and painting, with glass sleep eyes that are aligned well in the head, and work well on the sleeper mechanism (just tilt him back or lay him down). The composition baby body is good, with only some minor and typical wear, particularly to the torso. The costume is good, with only minor and expected age wear. Overall, he’s a great baby boy!
