Antique German Snow Baby Candy Container Doll Wax Paper Mache Christmas Ornament

***RARE 6.5" Antique German Snow Baby Angel Candy Container Doll Wax Paper Mache Mica Putz Cotton Christmas Ornament Figurine Figure - Belsnickle / Heubach Style Not Bisque - circa 1890-1900 Victorian Edwardian***

Wow! Here is a rare antique treasure for all of you candy container, doll, and Christmas ornament collectors. This charming snow baby-style candy container doll has a detailed wax face and hands (not sure if it's solid poured wax or wax over compo, but I think it's the first one - I don't see any signs of composition underneath). The lifelike blue eyes look like glass embedded beneath a layer of wax. There's a sweet fringe of real blonde hair peeking out from under the little angel baby's hood. The doll wears a coat made of old cotton with white glittery mica / putz paper on top, with little gold fabric bows. A hollow cardboard tube is concealed inside the body; it slides out if you gently pull on the base of the figurine. This is where the candy would have been hidden. There is a little loop of thread at the top of the figure's hat, so it can be used as a hanging Christmas tree ornament (I wouldn't recommend hanging it now, since it is such a rare and delicate old thing). This piece stands about 6 1/2 inches tall, and I believe it was made circa 1890-1900.

This is an amazing find. It would make a very special gift to a favorite collector or to yourself. For details on condition and shipping, please read the sections below. For more antique and vintage toys, dolls, collectibles and other goodies, check out my other listings! I've included some sneak preview photos doll / ornament / candy container measures approximately 6 1/2 inches tall from the base to the tip of the figure's hat, and 1 1/2 inches wide across the base. It weighs 30 grams.
{{Condition}}

This piece is in very good antique condition. It is quite clean for its age, with only light surface soiling. There is slight wear to the face paint, in keeping with what my closeup photos show. The wax face and hands are in very good condition; the hands look nearly perfect and the face has just a slight amount of "bloom"/patina - maybe a few very shallow scratches. The inner cardboard tube looks pristine – very clean and well-shaped. The tip of the hood/hat is crumpled down slightly.
