VICTORIAN BABY DOLL WITH LONG CHRISTENING GOWN

Whether you find baby dolls creepy or adorable is entirely in the eye of the beholder, but this little chap certainly looks better with his long cotton christening gown on. His soft body has a few tears and his nose has been chipped but bearing in mind the age is in pretty good order. The dress has a couple of marks but with a good soak and a steam should come up nicely. No visible makers mark. Doll height 15.5". £50

LARGE VINTAGE JOINED MOHAIR TEDDY BEAR

I always think teddys have intelligent faces and this fella is no exception. Approximately 1940s-50s, fully jointed, with original eyes and a bit of a chewed nose, he has had a well loved life. There is a little damage to his ear and left foot but otherwise his velvety pads are in decent order and he has a few small bald patches. Well, haven't we all. 21" standing height. £65
