The brown glass sleep eyes are in good working order and on back of head is incised “ Copr. Grace Storey Putnam Germany “.

Nice little ( 11 ½”, 29cm ) Kestner baby incised back bottom of neck “ J.D.K. made in 7 Germany “ with open/closed mouth and although not bearing a specific mold number resembles, and most likely is, the solid domed version of the 211 model which was made in at least four different variations. Most unusual and not typical is that this doll has the rarer painted eyes, rarer brown ones at that, with separately modeled upper ad lower eyelids outlined in black with a red one above that on the upper lid, white highlight dots on pupils, and multistroke brows as well . the hair is painted with an obvious raised forelock on top front center. The composition baby body is original with original finish but some loss and blistering of paint on arms and legs but fully covered by the antique baby dress and pink knot sweater. he is wearing. A sweet baby in a desirable size!…………SOLD.

Tiny little “Bye-lo Baby” by Grace Storey Putnam, 9” tall and only 7 ½” head circumference. He has minuscule blue glass sleep eyes and has the traditional full incised “copyright mark and signature by “ GS Putnam and Germany “ despite the small size. Although the cloth body with perfect celluloid hands is old and of the period ( mid 1920s ), it does not have the usual “ frog leg “ positioning so although in perfect proportion and age may or may not be original to the head. As such, but not to be dismissed, we are offering at a most reasonable price of …US$ 145.
