All original condition, no crazing, no damage, no smells, no stains. A moisture stain at the top of his hat around the bead. A tiny dot of stray paint on his forehead. Weak seams om the clothing--nothing detracting. Almost as fresh as the day he was made. Little Ming Ming is 9" long; perhaps a tad longer if his bent limbs would straighten. His features are painted and his clothing pinned and sewn on. His hat is glued to his head. I have read up a bit on these dolls (another one was 'Ling Ling'--a girl doll) and the information said they were not marked.
I think his costume is wonderful--rich details such as beads and pom poms. Strips of fabric in a rainbow of colors. The fabric, I'm sure, is rayon made to look like silk. The trim is lovely. It's like someone acquired him, and then set him on a shelf in a cabinet for all his life.
Condition-wise, in these kinds of dolls, it doesn't get much better than this. Please study the photos. They are the best part of the description. Postage is an estimate, until I get a zip code. Thank you for checking in.
