This is a rare 12" tall circa 1910-1916 male bisque head doll on jointed wood and composition body made by the French company of Damerval Frere & Laffranchy of Montreuil-sous-Bois. He has a wonderful male character face with molded brown mustache and brown painted hair under his original brown mohair wig. The head is marked D L on the back

He has a very complete and all original Scottish costume that includes hat, jacket, shirt, sash, kilt with sporran, socks and shoes. He even has a pin at the shoulder.

Condition is generally goo. No chips, cracks or repairs to the bisque. There is some paint loss on his left upper leg. A couple seams on the jacket sleeves have come open.

He is rare and wonderful. Do your ladies need a man?
