I got this sweet face a few months ago. I know she is a little discolored. She has this weird thing at the bottom of her head were there is probably a neck plug, there is a "stick coming from the middle of the neck plug. There is nothing that it can attach to
I don’t know anything about ‘that thing’, but she is beautiful and look very realistically sculpted.
I think the name of this one is the “Mary face” Berenguer. The vintage ones were given names. There used to be a site that shows each vintage face with its name, but I can’t find it now.
You are right on the name.I have one of these somewhere that I dolled up for my grand daughter way back when I first started.
I think she has one of the sweetest and most realistic faces of the vintage ones.
It’s possible she was one of the ones that moved.
Yes they all had names. I keep looking for that site every now and then and can never find it anymore either. I have I think 6 of these packed away and of course I don’t remember all their names. You are right though this one is Mary Face.
Yes, this is the Mary Face Berenguer. I used that head with the 3/4 chubby Berenguer limbs and made a baby many years ago. I did so because my head came off a doll with sewn on limbs. This is the only photo I have of her and it is a scan of an old point and shoot photograph
Wow how sweet. Did she have that weird plastic stick coming out of the neck plug?
This is not my pic
Some of the Berenguer babies had those kind of plugs with the stick. It was meant to keep the head from being floppy.
Yes, and on the heavier heads like that if you want the baby to sit up like a toddler that works well. If you don’t just cut the stick end off with a craft knife and use the plug to plug up the neck hole.
There was another one called Snookie face. I think it was the one with the bottom lip sucked in. I did a few of those some years back.
Yes, I have one of those. I think those are the only two names I can remember. I haven’t even looked at those dolls in so long I don’t even remember the faces I have never mind the names.
Almost 7 years ago, when I began reborning; painted with Hunny Buns WaterBorne paints. I named him Patrick. Someone bought him from me for $30 on eBay.
The dolls cost more than $30 and you put work into him and dressed him. Someone got an unbelievable deal.
They did. I wish I’d kept him.
I would love to see more of these.
