RARE Madame Hendren Georgene Baby Music Box Composition Doll designed by Georgene Averill in 1936
MINT fully restored Geogene Baby (marked on the nape of her neck) from the 1930s is a PERFECT size to add to your composition doll nursery at just 17" high.
She retains her original softly stuffed cloth body that is quite clean. Much like the Ideal Princess Beatrix doll, her limbs rotate and drape 'here and there' to give her a variety of poses much like a real baby. Her kapok-stuffed body is SUPER SOFT and cuddly and LIGHTWEIGHT making her a great baby doll for any little girl to cuddle to sleep 'back in the day'.
Her MUSIC BOX winds with a key in her back and plays 'Rock-a-Bye Baby' ... perfect lullaby to fall asleep on a hot summer night.
As there is almost no reference information about this doll available, and she came without clothing when I purchased her 25 years ago, I have dressed her in a favored outfit of mine, that I have been saving for 'just the right doll' and here is the perfect one -- finally.
Factory made in the 1930s the dress has all the marks and styling of an Ideal cotton organdy dress and matching bonnet and original slip... in my view, the price of the baby dressed here is worth it just for the clothes~
The dress set is in PRISTINE -- as in never worn, never laundered, and NO apparent age patina to the fabric. The set is crisp, and retains it vivid ROBIN'S EGG BLUE color that surely matches her eyes.
I have added a pair of vintage silk socks, and newly made 'oilcloth' mocassins to complete her outfit.
