This darling little 10" antique baby doll was made by the Japanese firm Morimura Brothers in the early 1900s for distribution in the USA. She has a bisque socket head with no cracks and no repairs. There is a tiny flake on the rim edge of the opening at top of forehead.
Bisque is smooth and creamy with well blushed, dimpled cheeks with a tiny rub on lower left cheek. The molding is very well done and defined especially around the eyes and pouty mouth. Lips are painted in a soft pink on her open mouth showing two tiny upper teeth.
Incised mark is 22 MB (inside a round logo) Japan 2
She is on her original five-piece composition baby doll body in good condition with original finish and touchup to three finger tips. Her blue glass eyes have been set stationary. Upper and lower lashes are finely painted and brows are painted in the tiniest long multi-strokes. Her light brown antique mohair wig has been tailored to fit.
Baby wears a long antique gown of sheer cotton lawn with lace trimmed sleeves and neckline. It has a few pin holes and two darned mends on the skirt. The bonnet is a lovely older vintage pink organdy one with 3 ruffles around the brim and tiny pink flowers sewn on the top.
Undies include an antique cotton full slip with wide ruffled bottom, a vintage flannel diaper and cute old knitted pink and white booties.
She will also bring along her favorite little stuffed dolly wearing a gingham dress.
Thanks for your interest in this adorable baby. I hope she finds a place in your heart.
