Antique teddy bears are my real passion, but every once in awhile I find a doll that appeals to me. That was putting it mildly with this guy, spotted at an antique show yesterday. A bisque headed character baby on a composition body, he was made in Germany by Hertel Schwab around 1910-1912. He has blue glass sleep eyes, his original soft mohair wig, and an antique doll's christening gown and cap. He measures about 8 1/2 inches tall in his sitting position, and I thought the tiny Schuco bear was the perfect companion for him.
This close up reveals the beauty of his face sculpt and painting. He even has a little dimple in his chin...
