This adorable little oddity fits the old cliche of being so ugly that she's cute. Only 2.5 inches high, this petite pudgy child has blue glass sleep eyes and is of pink precolored bisque. Her short plump arms are loop jointed, but her fat little legs are stiff. This chunky child is by Hertwig and Company of Germany and is incised "Germany" on her back. She has a blonde mohair wig topped with a cap of fine lace and has been dressed in a pale green shift with tiny ecru trim around the hem and armholes and a little hand embroidered flower on the bodice. Underneath she has lace panties. The clothing is sewn on. The eyes are a little sticky and do not completely close, but other than that, this tiny tot is in wonderful condition for her age. She would be wonderful in a dollhouse or held in the arms of a lucky larger doll. This diminutive doll is certainly something different!
