Antique Grace S. Putnam "Bi-Lo/Bye-Lo Baby" Doll (Great Condition, Circa 1920-25)
13-in tall, bisque head, composition hands, cloth body & feet (frog position), blue-colored sleep eyes (with original wax), reddish-brown painted/molded hair, crier inside (but does not function.)
Red-stamped logo on chest reads as Bye-Lo-Baby, PAT APPLIED FOR BY GRACE STOREY PUTNAM.
Back of neck reads as Copr by Grace S. Putnam.
No damage to head or body or hands -- great condition.
Dressed in ORIGINAL lace-trim christening gown & underslip, cotton diaper, cotton socks.
This doll was owned by my grandmother who received it as a young girl (she was born in 1914, lived in Traverse City, Michigan). It has been in the family ever since (it has been lovingly stored for over 80 years with great care, in non-smoking environments). I would love for it to have a home with a doll collector or antique enthusiast.
Additional pictures available upon request (body, hands, head, logo, etc.)
