I had to include Snow Babies in my information on Bonnet Head Dolls. Snow Babies are small figurines that are collected alsong with dolls. They were originally made in the 1880;s in Germany. They were primarily made as cake toppers. The snow babb is small, all porcelain, and is dressed in a
white snow suit that looks as though it is covered in snowflakes. The face has very delicately painted features. In a short time after being made in Germany Japan began reproducing them in a much lower quality than the original German made Snow baby. Snow babies have remained a popular collectable still in modern times. In recent years Department 52 bagen to produce them in Taiwan and is still making them today. I have quite a few Snow Babies and I am including some pictures of one of them.
