Offered is this antique cloth doll with oil painted face, hair and lower arms. I am guessing circa 1890. He is approx. 15" tall. Very unusual hairstyle in somewhat like a bob. He is wearing his original red jacket and knickers, albeit they do have quite a few holes in them. Underneath his jacket is his original off white shirt. Black socks. He is missing his shoes. There is some wear to the oil paint. Hair is very unusual in that it looks like the head was painted and heavier coats were put on to give it texture. There is loss and cracking on the hair as you can see in the picture. Some wear to face.
I don't want to remove his pants as I don't want to cause any damage. Body is in good condition, very firmly stuffed.
Wonderful rare boy cloth doll with unusual hairstyle would be a great addition to any folk art, primitive or cloth doll collection.
