This is an amusing 16" tall circa 1910 German bisque character doll model #205 made by Gebruder Knoch. This child model has an open closed mouth with molded tongue, rather prominent ears, and a smoothly modeled head with just a slight indication of the hairline. The hair is thinly painted and gives the impression of a baby's fine hair. The back of the shoulder plate is marked Made in Germany 205 13/0. The GKN portion of the mark is not legible, but this model number is recorded in Ciesliks Doll Marks book under Gebruder Knoch and the description matches.
This doll has its original kid body with bisque hands. The label on the body says Columbia Cork Stuffed. He comes dressed in a nice set of antique baby doll clothing consisting of drawers, stockings, wool petticoat, wool knit bonnet, and long white cotton baby gown. He also has a small doll quilt and pillow case to travel with him.
Condition: the bisque is in good condition. No chips, cracks or repairs. The body is is fair condition, with old patches, and the torso has lost stuffing and needs some more padding inside. Lower cloth legs have been recovered.
This is an unusual character model doll. Baby is looking for a new loving mama.
