A very unusual black leather doll with shoe button eyes, raised nose and applied cutout leather mouth painted red but a lot worn off. He has grommets down his chest that look like they are hand formed. I don't know if this was a doll to teach how to lace and tie a shoe or someone wanting a doll with a clever look. He is all hand sewn, has on hand made leather boots that look like they might be original but the hand sewing in not the same quality as the doll so I feel they might be a later addition. He is 12" tall and a real show stopper. Circa 1900-1910
