This sweet girl has a closed-dome bisque head with a 14.5" circumference, and stands at 19” on her original cloth body with a crier, with celluloid hands. She has blue glass sleep eyes with painted upper and lower lashes, faint blond tapered brows, a closed pouty mouth, and painted blond hair.
She wears an antique white cotton baby gown, with a narrow band of insertion lace bordered by a lace ruffle, pin tucks on the bodice, and lace trim with pale blue insertion ribbon at the collar and sleeves. Underneath, she wears a long antique white cotton full slip with lace trim, a white knit baby undershirt, and a flannel diaper. On her feet are a pair of long white knit socks, and a pair of blue knit booties with a chenille texture inside and two blue pompoms at the toes. On her head is a white corduroy bonnet, with a brim and a decoration of pin tucks and mother of pearl buttons on the crown.
MARKS: Germany / Kiddiejoy / 345/6
CONDITION: Great. Her head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, but has spots of what appears to be ink and/or dark paint, mainly on the back of the head. Her features are well-molded in the Kiddiejoy style. Her eyes sleep well, with good alignment. Her cloth body has a small patch at the back of the neck, and has some discoloration and staining, and the crier mechanism no longer works. Her celluloid hands are replacements, and do not exactly match each other, but are an appropriate size and color. The costume has expected age wear, including a few small stains. Overall, a great doll with a great face and presentation!
