FREE SHIPPING ~ NO ADDED FEES ~ TAX INCLUDED ~ Layaway Available
This is the PRAYER issue of the Lovums phonograph doll... she has bent knees that allow her to pray on her knees by her bedside before hopping off to dreamland. She also sits nicely on the edge of a shelf ... or her bed.
Here is a doll to LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE. You are viewing an extremely rare LOVUMS composition and cloth toddler BENT LEG baby doll that has an EDISON wax record phonograph embedded in her midsection --there were SIX blue wax records available for this and a couple of other Effanbee dolls of this same period -- Dolly Rekord by Madame Hendren and Mae Starr by Effanbee -- each play a different Nursery Rhyme or prayer (see my 3rd photosthat is an actual videos of Lovums SINGING/reciting these one of these rhymes.)
Purchase of this doll INCLUDES ONE RECORD -- "Now I lay Me Down to Sleep" ONLY
This FABULOUS and rare doll is in MINT condition having been fully restored by the best of the best. The phonograph itself has been completely refurbished to play smoothly and loudly just as it did almost 100 years ago to ensure another almost 100 years of 'life' -- beautiful display!
LOVUMS wears her TAGGED original white cotton organdy dress with matching bonnet, replaced cotton slip and white cotton bloomers (with an opening in the side to accommodate the winding crank on her side), and pink stripe silk socks. For nighttime cuddles, she comes with her drop seat pajamas and original Esmond robe. I have added a silk knit tasseled nightcap for warmth on those extra cold nights.
Lovums has a molded curls composition head and limbs that move freely and securely to raise and lower her arms. The cloth body has overall age patina; the tape on the body is original as that is what was used to help imbed and secure the phonograph.
Her face is VIBRANT with beautiful BROWN EYES that sparkle with good cheer and, of course, LOVE as she gazes up at you, and raises her arms to be picked up and hugged.
The mechanical Edison phonograph is in PERFECT working condition and plays the wax cylinders clearly and perfectly. I have included a video so you can hear her SING.
EXTREMELY RARE TO FIND THIS DOLL WITH A WORKING PHONOGRAPH -- with a RECORD, and ORIGINAL CLOTHING.
I will include instructions to the buyer on the care, playing and handling of the records and phonograph if needed.
