This offering is for a delightfully rare 14" antique character toddler boy doll marked "PM//914//6" on back of his head. "PM" is the mark for the German doll company PORZELLANFABRIK MENGERESGEREUTH established in 1908, known for fine bisque head jointed dolls. His description follows.
HEAD: The boy's bisque socket head is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, hairlines, factory flaws or restoration. The only minor issue are a few tiny lighter colored spots on the doll's naturally blushed cheeks. They are easily overlooked. This cutie's features include large brown weighted glass sleep eyes, feathered brows, tiny hand painted upper and lower eye lashes, red accent eye corner and nostril dots and an open mouth with a smile that shows two upper teeth and a molded tongue. There are remnants of a brown wig in a few places on the rim. The blonde wig shown in the pictures has been replaced with a brown wig that matches the original color.
BODY: This doll is on his original chunky toddler body. The paint is all original and in excellent condition. There is no damage to the sturdy body. The stringing is secure, so the doll may be positioned in a variety of poses.
COSTUME: This toddler is all dressed up in the favorite Edwardian outfit--a sailor suit. The sailor suit is made of 100% cotton in an ivory color, with blue satin ribbon trim. He wears draw string pants, a front snap sailor uniform shirt with ties and a sailor beret. He is adorable and is ready to meet a new Mommy and playmates. He wears old oilcloth shoes and socks that match the color of his sailor suit. All garments are in perfect condition.
The 914 PM doll, with a toddler body in this size, is certainly a challenge to find. He will make a super addition for a collection and is display ready. You will love him--guaranteed. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to know about our customer friendly LAYAWAY plan.
