      Bye-lo doll by Grace Putnam !
      Released in 1923 by designer Grace S. Putnam, Bye Lo baby dolls were truly one of a kind during the time because they include a sculpting design, which highlights infant accuracy rather than baby idealism. A German doll with remarkably realistic characteristics, Grace S. Putnam created the Bye Lo baby doll collection following a divorce in an attempt to support her family as a single mother. With an eye for detail, Grace S. Putnam switched manufacturers many times during the 30 years of production to meet the demands of high-quality manufacturing. Inspired to resemble the lifelike features of a 3-day-old baby, Bye Lo baby dolls rose to such popularity that they earned the nickname "million dollar babies."

      This is what original body looks like , Price is high on this one but wanted you to see what body should look like.
      These dolls are often found as reproductions . Yours is not but many listed are repro's done by people in ceramic class and some are well done and there is a pattern for the bodies . Just tossing that in for anyone buying one someday

      Are hands light weight they should be made of celluloid ? I always like a close up of face and undressed to see body to verify age .
