This is a Bakelite set buggy and basket with a Stork carrying the celluliod baby . The ribbon on bottom is all silk . It stand about 17" tall . As fragile as it is it survived well . This was most apt to appear on a table at a baby shower . I think it is fun and lovely . After all we know the stork is getting pretty tired from toting all those babies all over the world , so he deserves some appreciation . Circa 1940's to 50's
Bakelite is a very early plastic and in itself is collectible .
I have no idea where to place this in categories ?

    Love it! I am finding myself looking at old decorations...spun heads, shiny brights etc. Trying not too, but willpower is fading.

    This is delightful, Manikin! Poignant reminder of another time. Not so long ago, but it seems to be that the arrival of a baby back then was something that everyone took time and care to acknowledge. It is also a lovely centerpiece. Beautiful stork, and a silk ribbon? It makes me smile a happy smile. Thank you.

    This is beautiful!!!,Manikin I love every detail. It reminds me of old greetings cards I have from the 30's and 40's I have.
  11. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you Bellin and bratjdd :-) It does look like a old baby shower card to me also . Someone added a newer piece if lace at top but it is a fairly large center piece for a table . And I like the story of the stork it has become a lost one :-) Kids now know where babies come from by 4 to 5 years old unlike my generation we believed the story till we were nearly teens :-)

    i find myself loving these types of items also as do your other followers -- must be the grandmother gene kicking in --particularly search out the dollies and handiwork in the antique shops and yard sales -- just can not believe how little regard the families must have for the love one past -- found a pretty little popcorn dollies so very nicely done yesterday at an estate sale for a mere 50 cents -- the hours of work and every little stitch so perfectly done -- washed up beautifully and currently drying on the sweater rack

    i totally treasure all my grandmothers tatted items she left to me
