"Old King Cole" is an English language nursery rhyme on which this 1980's turby doll was inspired. It is 14" tall and the colors are fresh and crisp like the first day. It still keeps the original tag on dress and on one of the king's hands.
It was stored when purchased by a family member doll collector. It is like new condition!
Old King Cole was a merry old soul
And a merry old soul was he;
He called for his pipe, and he called for his bowl
And he called for his fiddlers three.
Every fiddler he had a fiddle,
And a very fine fiddle had he;
Oh there's none so rare, as can compare
With King Cole and his fiddlers three.
William King's version has the following lyrics:
Good King Cole,
And he call'd for his Bowle,
And he call'd for Fidler's three;
And there was Fiddle, Fiddle,
And twice Fiddle, Fiddle,
For 'twas my Lady's Birth-day,
Therefore we keep Holy-day
And come to be merry
