For sale is a vintage Bye-Lo Baby doll with a bisque head, cloth body, and the blue sleepy eyes open and close. The doll comes with the original clothes including the slip, christening gown, and socks. The ribbon around the neck is original, but one ribbon on the sleeve is missing. The diaper may be a later addition.It looks like something Mother would have done. The doll was given to my sister by our great aunt and uncle from Germany. A letter signed by Great Uncle Otto and Great Aunt Mary will be included in the sale. The letter indicates that my sister received the doll in 1959 when the doll was 27 years old. We were never allowed to play with the doll, and it sat in a box for decades. When it was retrieved a few years ago, we discovered that a mouse had damaged the dress and slip.
The damage is limited to the clothing. The dolls cloth body is intact. The damage was done many years ago, so there is no residual smell. There are no stains or soil on the head, body or hands. There are no chips or cracks on the head, the hands are not cracked or broken.
The doll has a cry box, but it doesnt work. There is writing printed on the chest.
