Vtg Baps Little Bo Peep+sheep Nursery Rhyme Felt Dollhouse Doll German Miniature For Sale
Offered here for your offerding pleasure is this darling set of vintage Baps nursery rhyme dolls, featuring the character Little Bo Peep and her wooly little sheep! Baps dolls are the creation of Edith Von Arps who started out her business in the 1940's or 50's,byselling her handmademiniature dolls from door to door. These well made dolls were made to represent various storybook characters as in regional costumes of the area. Once in a rare while, a seemingly one-of-a-kind doll may be found. I have been fortunate enough to handle some very interesting specimens over the years!
Bo Peep is tiny--just a mere 4" tall--small enough to fit into a doll's house. She has a wire armature body that can be posed, which is covered in felt, with the seams sewn closed in tiny, precise stitches. She has a cotton floss wig that still retains its tiny floral hair ornaments made from felt. Her satin brocadedress is nice and clean, and it has a cheesecloth half slip underneath for fullness. She is made with metal feet so that she can stand without the aid of a doll stand.The dollhas finely painted features on her cloth head. In this case, the doll has a down turned mouth, with theeyesclosed as she is crying for her lost sheep.
The sheep, however, have little embroidered mischievous smiles on their faces! They also have wire armature bodies with felt faces and ears,and cotton chenille bodies. They have all retained their original collars with bead 'bells'! Each is 2 1/4" tall. So sweet! The set of four miniatures is in very good condition, with perhaps the white sheep having turned slightly yellowed to an ivory color with age. Also, there is some very minor paint loss to the staff and to Bo Peep's shoe tips, as photographed.
Please see my other listings for more antique and vintage dolls, as I concentrate on getting busy selling on again after a short hiatus. Keep in mind that I would be happy to combine shipping!
