What a splendid doll he is! This is an 11.5” Parian-type man with a perfect bisque head. He is all original including his cloth body and his sewn-on costume which has never been removed. He won a blue ribbon in his class at the 1997 UFDC Convention in Anaheim, Ca. He is circa 1860s. I think he is so special! Layaway is always an option. Here are his details:
Head: His bisque shoulderhead is perfect with no cracks, chips, or hairlines. His clothes are sewn-on but his shoulderplate is clearly visible for examination. He has molded blond hair with waves framing his face. He is neatly painted and a very dapper fellow. He is marked 3 at the center rear shoulderplate. Examination: a few tiny bisque bumps in his hair and there is nothing else to report. He is very fine.
Body: I am unable to examine his body, except to say that it is all cloth and appears to be in very good aged condition.
Clothes: he is simply dressed in his all original clothing that has never been removed. He wears a brown wool suit with a greenish cast. The jacket is trimmed in pale green silk and the short pants are embroidered in a matching color. A large black bow holds the jacket together at the neck. Under the jacket, he wears a red “shirt” with gold trim. His wool socks are green and his “shoes” are black leather. He also wears the remains of a black belt.
