This baby Jesus is approximately 8” long. He is in his original presentation box which is 12” x 6” 7”. All of the original packing is within the box. The baby rests on a silk covered mattress that is embroidered with “JESUS” across the top. There is also a silk pillow that has the religious symbol “I H S and a crown embroidered above it”. Both the mattress and the pillow have some tiny frail areas on their surface. The baby is solid poured wax with no joints. He has glass eyes and a beautiful, angelic expression. His mouth is closed and he has painted brows, lips and nasal holes. He has had no repaint. Human hair comes from a tiny hole at the top of his head. His slip, swaddling cloth underwear, dress and hair are all hand sewn and appear original to the baby. At some time, many years ago, the front end of his right foot broke off and was re-attached to the foot with wax. His tiny nails are still pink. He is missing his index finger on his left hand. On the top of the box is printed “Couchette de L’ Enfant Jusus, Souvenir de Noel”. This is a wonderful treasure and one that I am sure was honored by someone many years ago.
