Adorable Schuetzmeister & Quendt Character Baby Doll, Orig. Wig and Costumes
This offering for an adorable 16 inch marked “201” character baby with a perfect bisque head, excellent composition bent limb body & beautiful original Edwardian attire. This baby has features that are beyond sweet. Look at her if you’re in a funky mood. She’ll brighten your day and bring a smile to your face. This girl’s bisque socket head is in excellent condition with no damage, factory flaws, wear or restoration. She wears her original brown mohair baby wig affixed to her head on its pate. Little hands likely gave baby a hair trim sometime in the past which accounts for its short baby style. Her large blue sleep eyes are one of her most endearing features, especially with nearly perfect eye wax and original human hair eyelashes. She has a perky nose, perfect chubby blushed cheeks (no rubs), an open mouth with two upper teeth, a red felt tongue and the start of a double chin. BODY: Her original bent limb composition body is in excellent condition with its original paint. I can find no areas that have been re-painted. The surface is smooth without cracks or missing paint. The hands and feet are complete with red lines between the digits. The stringing is just right for posing Dolly in different positions. The condition is excellent. COSTUME: This baby is dressed for sleeping AND for dressy day wear. Her original dress is made of fine pink and white striped silk. It is decorated on the neckline with lovely floral appliques. The skirt is gathered at the waist, has a full skirt and floral appliques hand sewn onto her dress. The dress closes in the back and is a perfect fit. She wears fancy old pantaloons and newer pink satin slippers. The dress is in excellent condition, especially for its age that dates from the 20’s. The beautiful vintage bonnet she wears is satin and lace, tied with ribbons under her chin. This baby is dressed for bedtime in a white cotton lawn nightgown with a lace insert on the bodice and lace trimmed short sleeves. There is a rust spot on the front of the gown which is the single obvious imperfection. Baby also wears a starched white organdy bonnet that fits perfectly. There are also short satin ribbons to tie as an option. This baby has a lot of value points and is just as adorable as possible—the best 201 baby I’ve seen. She is guaranteed to meet all of your expectations. Shipping by insured USPS First class mail $20. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for stopping by and for taking time to learn about the doll and view the photos.
