This tiny tot by Hertwig and Company appears almost overwhelmed by her bouffant hairdo. This unusual all original baby bathing beauty has her original pale blonde mohair wig, adorned with a light yellow ribbon, and her original red ribbon sash. Of excellent precolored bisque, this chubby cherub has large painted googly eyes and tiny rosebud lips. She is molded in a sitting position, but her arms are loop-jointed at the shoulders. Her features are cold painted, but show almost no wear. It is extraordinary that this charming child survived all these years intact and in such good condition. She is just 2.5 inches tall, including her beehive hair, and 1.25 inches long. This diminutive darling is incised “Germany” on her back. The elastic in her arms is a little stretched out, but she has sat many years in my collection like this, and I will leave it up to the buyer whether to restring her tiny arms.
