Offered is a vintage W. Goebel Charlot Byj doll #2902 made in Western Germany, 1957. Made of rubber he has bright red hair and wears the original grey checkered shirt and black felt pants with red pockets in front and a green patch on the back. On the front of his shirt he sports the original cloth tag that reads "Western Germany" albeit frayed, it is legible. On the back of his neck it's marked "2902 - Charlot Byj - © - W. Goebel - 1957". These same markings are on his back, but I am hesitant to take remove the fragile clothing for photos. On his left forearm is a really cute tattoo that shows a four leaf clover and reads, "Good Luck". Another obvious mark is the number "02" on the back of both feet. One of the first dolls created by American artist Charlot Byj who passed away in 1983 and is now a highly sought after collectible . A "Rare Possession" indeed. Condition is very good, although some TLC is in order. He is somewhat dirty and has three small holes in his felt pants. Remember our motto "Don't Mess with the Patina". These issues show well in the photos attached and I can e-mail more pictures if requested. Standing 10" tall this little guy needs a home. Please call or e-mail me with any questions
