He has a closed-dome bisque socket head, with nearly black paperweight glass eyes in narrow eye cuts, tapered brown brows, an open-closed mouth molded in a crying expression, and painted and molded wispy brown hair. He stands at 10” tall on his original five-piece bent-limb wood and composition baby body, with asymmetrically bent arms and legs, with an SFBJ paper label on the back.
He wears a vintage flannel jacket, in red, white, and grey-green plaid, with two patch pockets, a white cotton fold-over collar, and white cotton trim down the front, at the tops of the pockets, and at the sleeves; he also wears a pair of vintage navy blue knit pants, with a red and white stripe at the top. Underneath, he wears an antique white cotton undershirt, and on his feet are a pair of vintage red and white striped socks. On his head is a vintage red and white crochet hat, which is sort of shaped like a mushroom. A simply adorable ensemble!
MARKS: 233 / 0 [incised, back of head]
FABRICATION FRANCAISE / PARIS / SFBJ [roundel paper label, back of torso]
CONDITION: Excellent. The bisque head is free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with great modeling and painting of a wonderful crying character face. The eyes are aligned well in the head. The body has had several areas of chipped paint, which have been repainted, mainly on the limbs, and especially on the hands. The torso retains much of its original shiny finish, with some small touchups and age wear to the joints, as well as its SFBJ paper label, though the middle has been worn away. The vintage costume is excellent, with very little age wear and few moth holes. Overall, this is an adorable baby without any big issues.
