VC9013GC: Heubach in Basket
This a charming antique baby doll, displayed in an antique wicker display basket, lined with original silk lining. Overall condition of basket is excellent with very little wear or soiling. Wicker is in lovely original condition. Some pieces of wicker missing on side of lid and I believe part of the wicker locking mechanism is missing. The handle is in good stable condition and overall, the presentation basket is simply beautiful. Inside, there is a handmade wool knitted blanket, with a very good repair in the center. You really have to look to find this. Baby measures 7.5" tall and is jointed at the arms and legs and head. Original body has original paint and is good condition, save for a few chips to the composition at the neck well of the body. The bisque head is lovely and has no condition issues. Beautifully painted face, rose blushed full cheeks, double chin, closed mouth, pale blond painted hair. Marked at the back of the head. I can make out the Heubach mark 7744 and Germany. Dressed in original baby clothing which includes white lace embellished gown, pink satin embroidered bonnet and jacket. The jacket does have a rust stain in back, near the hem. A very sweet display!
