Flapper Carnival Child

Dad's Little Compo Baby

            This little darling is one that we are all familiar with. A VERY popular baby of the 30's and 40's. She belonged to my client's father and she wanted her to be repaired/restored to hand down to her daughter.

            Once the doll was taken apart she was stripped of her paint . The cracks and crevices were filled with a wood filler and allowed to cure. Once sanded...and sanded...and sanded..she was sealed.
All of her parts were airbrushed to duplicate the original color. Unforunately, her body could not be salvaged ...sooooo a new one was made using her original body as a pattern. Her crier was then repaired and placed back inside her little belly..
