Gebruder Heubach Porcelain Figurine of a Naked Baby Sucking his Big Toe, a favorite among collectors and hard to find especially in this larger size. His head has a 7 inch circumference and even though cradled into a ball with his foot in his mouth, he still measures a tad over 5-1/2 inches from the back of his head to the little toe on the foot that protrudes in front of his body. I have always loved everything about this piece. The fat rolls on the baby, the heavily molded eyes and lids, the hand and feet positions and of course the toe in the mouth all together make quite a conversation piece.
Marks: The Heubach Sunburst Mark, artist's tics and the mold number 480__. 4-1/2
Condition: Excellent with no damage and no repair. Pure tinted bisque without flaws.
