This little German doll including her cardboard chocolate candy box "bed" tugs at your heart strings. A little girl improvised turning an old candy box into a doll bed, with the lower pull out drawers for the baby's clothing. Certainly not the clothes and bed of a princess but nevertheless to the child, priceless.
The small German baby doll # 9769, is all bisque, jointed arms and legs. Painted facial features and hair. Doll is 4-1/2"tall.
Condition: Arms and legs are string tied but loose. No chips, although on the bottom of one foot an indent in the bisque. Probably a factory flaw. I like little dolls but I am not a collector nor know much about dolls, so if you have questions please ask. The above information is from my observation so I welcome any questions.
There are four little dresses made by a child except possibly one which may be a factory dress, It is a dimity, simple style with lace around the neckline Sleeveless with finished edge around the sleeves. The others are all hand stitched and made by the child's ability. Even a dress pattern cut from newspaper. Also a cream wool cape and a slip with crocheted hem line. A darling crochet bonnet with silk ribbons and ties. (this may have come with the doll) Also a cute little hooded cape trimmed in lace.
CANDY BOX BED AND DRAWERS
The cantilever top tray is baby's bed. She has a wool blanket edged in crochet. A pillow and case edged in lace and a white ruffled square eyelet sham. The pull out drawers stored her clothes and as found in a lower drawer tidbit of lace for sewing needs.
Candy box is 4-1/4"wide x 7" long x 3-1/2" high. Box does have some wear and tear but is serving dolly well.
