Chunky 7inch German Bisque 550 Baby Boy Doll Intaglio Eyes
Chunky 7inch German Bisque 550 Baby Boy Doll Intaglio Eyes and a toddler type body from an estate and in original condition. Back of head is marked Germany, 550, 14/0. Size is a broad 7" from top of head to bottom of lower right foot. The composition body has its original brown paper tape around the chest which may have a crier inside the torso. It doesn't appear that the tape has ever been removed from the body but we don't hear or feel the weight of a crier in there. The head has deep blue intaglio eyes, brushstroke painted hair, wide lips and a "pug" nose. There is also a chin dimple. The broad face, chunky body and original gauze dress with blue trim show this pudgy baby to be an original Boy baby doll. Lace trim is starting to pull away on one end. The head is all good. No cracks, chips, flakes, hairlines etc.... Although the head is detailed with a noticeable fontanelle flat spot as you would see on a real baby's head the bisque is a little crude particularly on the ears. This is probably due to the dolls being one of the later examples to come out of this mold. The body is a 5 piece light pink lightweight composition having 2 legs that curve but don't cross. They look much as you would see in a baby learning to walk who has not fully achieved toddlerhood. The body has some age spotting which has not been cleaned and the neck socket is caving a little bit from age splits around the neck opening. The head still sits sturdy in the opening so a socket buildup is not necessary at this point but you may want to consider it down the line. Other than this the body is all intact and in fairly good condition. A little cleaning and you will have a lovely all original German bisque boy baby for your collection. He also looks lovely displayed on antique miniature furniture.
