What an ADORABLE and RARE little doll baby... this is a 1937 all composition LITTLE CHERUB doll in a custom made original outfit and in exemplary MINT CONDITION... and she is absolutely incredible. She stands just 11" -- a prize for any collector of composition dolls.


This Cherub has been COMPLETELY RESTORED to its original beauty.


TWINS! SEE my other listing for her sister dressed in BLUE. My last photo shows them together... buy both and get a $100 discount... send me a chat message for details.


Manufactured by the Averill Doll Company which was started by Georgene Averill of the 'Madame Hendren' line of dolls, this exceptionally darling baby was designed by an employee of Averill... Harriet Flanders. Harriet originally wrote a book entitled "Little Cherub" and the doll was subsequently designed to accompany the book.


Very few of these little ones were made, and fewer still have survived well over the years. She is the smaller of the two sizes made (larger one 17") and is a fine and COMPLETELY RESTORED 11" Cherub  -- head to toe in BEAUTIFUL condition with no crazing, of course. She is appropriately marked on the nape of her neck "Harriet Flanders / 1937".'


This is a beautiful example of this very special doll, and she is presented to you in a 1930s VINTAGE pink organdy handmade OUTFIT -- includes a cute pair of booties, and replaced tiny slip and matching BIG pink Flower" style Hat.


Have you ever seen anything quite like her?!!


I have always loved this little doll, because of her story, and her impish flirty glance is endearing to the heart, wouldn't you say?


Cherub's head rotates on the neck flange easily, allowing you to place her in an 'infinite' variety of poses... really makes her little personality shine. Her body has bent arms and toddler legs -- Beautiful coloring and pink flesh tone lend this little sweetie pie all the desirable characteristics of a highly collectible doll... truly a fabulous find for those who love composition dolls.


I have included many photos for your assessment of this sweetest of baby girls... simply superb! Adorable face!


Beautiful blonde molded and painted hair is perfection with Darling little 'clumps' of sunny yellow color array in a burst around her little head... like a halo for the little angel she is!


 If you reference Ursala R. Mertz book, Vol. I "Collector's Encyclopedia of American Composition Dolls", you will find examples of this darling doll.
