This is a fabulous black cloth doll with extraordinary clothes that are sewn on and I feel are original. He has embroidered face but is missing his embroidered mouth. The outline of the mouth can be seen at close inspection but nothing remains of the floss. He has astrakhan hair, attached arms and legs that are jointed at the knees as well as the hips.. He wears a cap, a silk shirt, red knicker pants both of which are very fragile and shredding but some conservation has been done on the shirt with sewing and some backing of the material. His shoes are felt and his socks are re and black striped and I do feel the socks are a later addition. They are old and nice but don't show the wear and history of all the rest of his clothes. He is 19" tall and stuffed pretty firmly. He is a thin lanky doll but does have the early shaped body. This is a gem of a boy doll. Please see all the pictures and ask me any questions. Circa 1880
