This charming baby girl was made by Armand Marseilles for importer and distributor George Borgfeldt, in the 251 model. Her pouty open-closed mouth and molded tongue make her a rarity! That darling character face is complemented by a softly-curled mohair wig and her original matching dress and bonnet set. This darling girl is an excellent addition to any collection, and she is just waiting for someone to take her home!
**This girl is available on a short layaway plan, so you can take your time to pay! Give us a call at 718-859-0901 to discuss payment options!**
This sweet girl has a bisque socket head with 7" circumference in the AM 251 style, and stands 11” on her original five piece bent limb composition baby body. She has brown glass set eyes with pale painted upper and lower lashes, small brown tapered brows, and that rare open-closed mouth with molded tongue. She wears a new auburn wig in a short, softly curled style.
Her clothing is all original! She wears her lovely original sheer white cotton dress with lace trim, and a pale pink bow on the chest. On her head is her original matching bonnet in the same sheer white cotton, with matching lace trim. Underneath, she wears a white cotton combined undershirt and pantaloons. On her feet are white knitted booties with pale pink ribbons around the ankles.
MARKS: 251 / G B / Germany / A 4/0 M / DRGM / 248/1
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. Her head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, but has some inherent spots and marks in the bisque. Her features are well-molded with that rare 251 character expression, and there is some minor wear to the paint. Her body maintains its original finish, with some overall age wear. She is missing a finger on her left hand, and has chipping on one toe on her right foot. Overall, a great doll with a great face and presentation!
