This is a truly rare example of an antique French jointed all bisque 2.5" tall Lilliputian doll in the form of a sailor man with molded hat and exaggerated sideburns. He is jointed at neck, shoulders and hips. His sailor costume is all original, though quite faded in front. His molded hat is yellow with a blue ribbon painted around the crown. His facial features are quite delicately painted, and those sideburns would do Elvis proud. His feet are black painted heeled boots.
Condition is over all good. I detect no damage to the the bisque parts. His clothing is faded in front.
These charming French Lilliputian dolls are hard to find, and this particular gentleman with molded hat is a rarity.
