This salvaged bye-lo baby bisque head is a great curio display piece as is, but he's also ready to be repurposed into a new doll or assemblage art. He's about 3.5" tall.
This is an imperfect as found piece. His chin has cracked and been repaired. Please examine the pictures closely to see exactly what you are getting.
The Bye-Lo Baby was created in 1920 by Grace Storey Putnam, a single mother who began doll making to support her family. She modeled the doll after a three-day-old baby. It was the first time a doll had been created to look realistically like an infant, instead of an idealized, stylized version of a baby. The Bye-Lo Baby was recreated by other doll manufacturers, including Armand Marseille, who made this one. Marseille's factory in Germany produced 1,000 bisque doll heads a day between 1900 and 1930.
