This absolutely beautiful antique all-wood Schoenhut Nature baby doll measures 15 inches long. Dating to circa 1918, she has a darling pouty face with painted features. Manufactured with blue stippled eyes that are lined in brown along the top lids only, her face paint does appear to be all original. Realistically molded, she has a recessed chin and an open/closed two-toned mouth. Save for only a very slight chip to the right index finger, her lightly repainted body � is in excellent overall condition. She is costumed in a lovely outfit that consists of a tan knit sweater, an antique organdy gown, an antique slip that is almost as long as the gown, knit diapers and vintage knit booties. Moreover, the gown has delicate pink featherstitching at both the neckline and hem.� Although the booties show wear from age, the clothing otherwise is without damage.� Her thinning mohair wig, decorated with a large pink bow, is original. The next new owner will certainly delight in the well-preserved condition of this sweet baby.Please see my numerous photos to follow, as well as my other auctions for more wonderful vintage and antique dolls.
