MB Baby Darling


Late in the 19th century, French, German, and Japanese doll makers produced all-bisque dolls for the American market. These dolls came in sizes ranging from just an inch or two up to 12 or 15 inches. Some all-bisque dolls were made of one mold. Others had a head and torso of one piece, and arms and legs held in place by elastic cord. Still others had a torso and legs, and separate molds for the arms and head. Or dolls came together in six pieces: head, torso, two arms, and two legs. Once assembled, these dolls received painted details for eyes, nose, mouth, complexion, and, many instances, stockings and shoes or boots. Many dolls were sold undressed; others appeared in retail stores fully clothed.
