Composition miniature Irish doll, mint in box. Made in Japan. I have acquired a small group of these dolls, all listed in my shop, and they are just so charmingly odd. This one is called "Irish". He has never been removed from his box, which, aside from staining, is in decent condition, (a piece of interior paper has ripped away from the top), with embossed paper decoration. This tiny, sweet guy wears flannel short pants with a matching short jacket. His vest has an orange ribbon tie and his top hat of a stiffened fabric with a ribbon band and two green flannel leaves. He has molded hair, and painted shoes. He measures 4.125 inches tall, and the box is 4.625 inches by 3.25 inches by 1.375 deep. There are three other charming versions listed. I do not know what the date of manufacture is, but these are part of a more extensive series that are copied from a German version. Stand is not included.
