Harriet Flanders 1937 Compo 12" LITTLE CHERUB Baby


This an ADORABLE and RARE little doll baby... this is a 1937 all composition LITTLE CHERUB doll in near mint condition... and she is absolutely incredible. She stands just 12" -- perfect cabinet-sized doll and a prize for any collector of composition dolls.


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 petite at 12" from head to toe and is among the best of the Cherubs I have had. Cherub 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 wearing a more recently made exact reproduction of her classic skating outfit. She retains her original oilcloth skates to help her glide across the ice with grace and ease.


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? Doll herself  -- all painted features are intact, with smooth and even tone composition and only two stray light lines. 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 original coloring -- sweet blush still shines at her knees, tops of hands, back of elbows, chest, and cheeks -- 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 -- my close up of her is a good representation of her condition...  just AMAZING! Adorable face!


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