The adorable bisque babe is by the German firm of Gebruder Heubach, renown for dolls and figurines of cherubic children with realistic faces and lively expressions. This pretty piano baby is made of the excellent sharp bisque often used by Heubach and his cute face features the life-like modeling, including intaglio eyes, typical of this company. His plump rosy body barely clad in his nightshirt, this chubby child is beautifully modeled, from his blond curls to his tiny toes. Underneath, he is incised with the Heubach sunburst mark. Approximately 6 inches long, he is in excellent condition, with his delicate figures and thumbs intact. There are some faint scattered darker marks on his left hand and wrist, and some tiny faint scattered freckling, about the size of pin pricks, mainly on his left cheek and shoulder, but these factory flaws are only noticeable on the closest inspect and do not distract from this dimpled darling (although they attest to his age and authenticity).
