This Chinese doll was made with a wire body covered with fabric padding and then silk clothing. His heads, lower arms and feet are made from some kind of composition material and then painted. Because of his wire construction, his arms, legs, and body etc can be carefully repositioned. The feet are wired together to provide a more stable base...it is a theory which frankly does not always work well.

This doll is approx 10 inches tall in standing position and is wearing a "raincoat" made of sisal. He is in good condition considering his age and use...a few nicks in the paint, rips in the clothing etc.
