Most well-decorated Victorian parlors of the late 1800s and early 1900s had pianos draped with shawls. Something decorative was needed to hold those fabrics in place. From that necessity, piano babies were born.

P1020192.JPGPiano babies are figures of babies made of unglazed bisque, mostly produced in Germany. Factories were already established as makers of fine bisque dolls, so it wasn’t difficult for them to expand their market by creating piano babies

I just plain enjoy these little cuties.
