20" Old Antique Bisque Head Composition German Borgfeldt Character Baby Doll:
UP FOR ADOPTION I am pleased to offer you this “delightful” antique character baby doll. Attached tothis dolla blue "First Place Winner" ribbonfrom the Timbertown Dollology Club 1988. On the inside of theribbon is "Bent Leg Baby Class, 1st Place, owner name, 5-1-88, Timbertown". Incised on the back ofhis bisque head is "Germany, G.B". Reference attributes "G.B" to George Borgfeldt and Company,1881 to 1930. Measures just about 20" tall being a bisque socket head on jointed bent leg compositionbaby doll body. A larger size baby head that measures 13" around the head above the brow area withtape measure. Doll is strung just fine jointed at the neck, arms and legs. Some scuffs, re-paint touch-upand wear on the body but all intact. I notice a little restoration was made on the fingers, a bit rough andmay require a little further paint restoration, up to you, nothing too terrible but need to mention. If youwould like photos please email. Fingers and toes accented with red lines for that "life-like" appearance.Absolutely beautiful Expressive character face with open and close blue glass sleepy eyes that work fine,retains wax on eye lids, baby has painted black lashes around the eyes, feathered brown brows, openmouth with two upper teeth and molded tongue that is part of the lower lip. Nice color blush on hiswonderful face, light paint rub on cheeks, nothing terrible but need to mention. A little double baby chinand faint dimple accents his overall charm. I removed the pate from his head to flash inside and do notsee any cracks or hairlines, there is plaster cement to secure the sleepy eyes on rocker as most dollpeople do.I see no splits on the rim, a little old glue residue throughout from the wig, head is a bit dirtyinside I did not attempt to clean in any way. Hand written paper tag tells me this is his original blondemohair wig with pate, it does show wear but is overall charming and could use a little TLC. He wears anadorable "hand made" blue two piece outfit, matching cap, with white shirt stockings and shoes. Thebottom of one shoe needs a little restoration. He is all ready for his "new home" with rose in hand! Ihave taken plenty of photos. Please look at my photos they will serve as part of this description. If youwould like further photos or have questions please email me. This character baby is "precious" andwould be a "Treasure" for a collection or display! Old and not perfect, but he will certainly put a "smile"on your face every time you walk by him! Offering as is condition shown with 10 day sale.
