Featuring Antique Vintage BYE LO BABY DOLL by Grace S. The history of this doll artist is quite interesting and the doll is over 95 years old. It has been recently stored away safely. Communication is the best means for success. This is what I know.Face is still smooth and color is excellent, no cracks on head. The head it is wrapped very very tight you could see how hard it was for me to use the blue pointer so I could show that it was made in Germany.
The head does turn nicely. There does appear to be a hairline crack In the corner of her left eye toward the nose. Sleepy blue eyes are working perfectly.
The wording BYE LO is stamped on the chest but has become faint but it is slightly visible. On the back of the doll there is a crier but it does not work. All original and has a frog like body as they all did.
The unfortunate part are the hands of the doll they have gradually over the years broken away. I do have most of them as you can see in the last picture but whether it can be used again only an expert would know. Also as I was taking pictures of the doll and part of the left hand celluloid plastic broke away. I do not claim to be an doll expert. Yes the clothing and bonnet are torn and tattered but the bonnet is precious.
The doll is measuring 16 inches I believe that they made two sizes in the original BYE LO baby. Always been in a nonsmoking home.
My transparency concerning this baby is most important to me if I missed a concern you have please reach out and ask knowledge is power. Thank you for viewing and taking the time to read.
