Gorgeous Franz Schmidt 1295 in amazing costume
This 17" franz Schmidt 1295 character boy has an incredible presentation! His bisque head is in wonderful condition with crisp, expressive painting. He's on his all original body in it's original finish. His costume is amazing, it's a replacement, beautifully made from a dark brown velvet with antique lace trim. His tiny coat buttons are amazing little metal shank miniature indian head pennies!! Fantastic!! His body has a crack on his lower back, it's been sealed with a thin layer of glue to keep it stable, other than that his body and limbs are in great condition! all original finish with good hands and feet. He's a bit loosely strung but really just fine I think.
The crack on his body could easily be filled a refinished, but I don't see the need really.
His eyes no longer sleep but have been set with plaster, nicely, clearly done at a doll hospital. He wears a very nice replacement mohair wig in a gorgeous reddish brown! This little guy has a gorgeous presentation! This is my favorite Character toddler, the Schmidt 1295 is franz schmidt in top form!
Because of his few issues I'm offering him at a Bargain price! He displays perfectly! You could not ask for a better looking 1295! Much less a 17" 1295 for about a third of the usual $1200 price tag!
