Large & Very Unusual Heubach 317 Character Baby- Tremble Tongue- Original Wig For Sale
This is a very hard to find character baby, made by Ernst Heubach around 1910, with the mould number 317.
He has large brown glass eyes which open and close perfectly, all of the original eyelid wax is intact and still a lot of the real hair eyelashes. There are top and lower painted eyelashes and multi stroke eyebrows. The open mouth reveals two original teeth and a tremble tongue which moves well.
I guarantee his head has no hairlines, chips or restorations and is clearly impressed on the back Heubach Koppelsdorf - 317.7 - Germany.
The wig is his original dark brown mohair and is still in good condition.
He is a large doll and measures 21 inches ( 53 cms)
He is on a good body which still retains its original colour and sheen, it has the original tape around the torso and the gauze at the back for the voice box, I cannot get the voice box to work. All the fingers and toes are good with no repairs.
He is stamped on his bottom - Made in Germany.
He is wearing a vintage whitework dress with a pretty broderie anglais petticoat and white cotton pantaloons. The 100% silk bonnet has a Harrods label inside.
A super large character.
