Description of Doll for Sale

I am pleased to have an interesting example of a Georgene Averill "Bonnie Babe".  This baby was made in the US during the 1930's by Georgine Averill using a German bisque head made in Germany for her by ABG (Alt, Beck & Gottschalck).  The doll was distributed in the US by George Borgfeldt. The doll is on it's original cloth body with original unbroken celluloid hands.  Hands like these are very fragile and are often found broken on a doll of this type.  The body also has a non functional MaMa voice box.  This baby has been redressed in an inappropriate vintage dress.  The style of the dress is more like what is seen on a Patsy doll instead of a baby doll like Bonnie Babe.
