 Always popular 15” ( 38cm ) Gebruder Heubach character with pre-tinted pink bisque socket head incised “ 5636 31/2 Heubach ( in “fan” logo ) Germany “ with blue glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes and multistroke eyebrows, with wide open/closed smiling mouth with molded tongue and two lower teeth with yet a slight opening between the tongue and upper lip, deep dimples in cheeks, and mounted to the original German wood and composition fully jointed body with straight wrists, and with very good and mostly original finish. He wears an antique blond curly mohair wig, black canvas shoes, and a most appealing factory- made costume of beige and red felt wool with elaborately embroidered thread designs, perhaps part of a traditional regional costume or a semi-military outfit (!). If anybody can reference this design/origin we would love to have your input/knowledge. Regardless, it is quite impressive and lends a unique character whether the costume be original or just one “ of the era”. In addition to the clothing the doll has an infectious smile certain to lift ones spirits on a “ rainy day “! …….SOLD.

 Perhaps the smallest example we remember seeing ( 9 ½”, 23cm ), nevertheless charming in its own unique manner, is this Gebruder Heubach doll incised “ 0 HEUBACH ( {in a square} logo ) 7760 Germany “ , with all molded and painted hair and facial features, expressing the crooked mouth and squinting (painted intaglio ) eyes and is obviously a very slightly different modeling of the same child with an even more extreme contorted expression known as the “ Spinach Baby”. He/she is on the original five piece crude painted carton toddler body with joints at shoulder and hips ( diagonally jointed ) and painted white socks and orangey “ Mary Janes “ with straps over the “ feet”. The clothing is basic ( but possibly original ) white and beige printed gauze with other gauze and lace trim , and also a homemade diaper covering its “ bottom” area. Small but impressive!………………………………………………US$ 1,450.
