OVERVIEW: This is an interesting little doll. He has a perfect bisque shoulderhead with wispy glazed hair. His original cloth body has perfect china limbs. He is wearing a cute felt suit. Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:
HEAD: His bisque shoulderhead is perfect with no damage or repairs. His glazed hair is short with wispy strokes around his face and comb marks throughout. Factory Imperfections: You can see some light factory marks in the bisque - but these photos are greatly magnified – these are not really noticed on display. Signs of Wear: None noted.
BODY: His cloth body is very clean with no leaking or repairs. His perfect limbs have some imperfections typical of the period. He has slender china arms and molded boots with tassels.
CLOTHING: He wears a cute old felt suit with gold trim. There are some moth holes. Underneath, he has sewn-on pantaloons.
TRUNK: His trunk is in excellent aged condition. It is wood with paper covering. The paper is nearly complete with only a little wear at the edges. It opens to display a picture of hunters – appropriate for a boy doll! Inside, there is a compartment to hold the doll as well as three removable small boxes in back. There are also two pull-out drawers on the front. There is one item in each compartment – all suitable for a boy. He has a working jack knife with a faux tortoise handle, a working adjustable wrench, a razor, a pipe and a top hat that is sadly too big for him.
