This is a 1926-30 Lenci Felt Cloth Male School Boy Doll 13 Inch Series 450 Cabinet Size. I believe he is from the 450 Series.The doll is soiled, faded and dusty from age. Lenci 13 inch (more like 12 1/2 inch) schoolboy is dressed in his original beige felt shirt with collar (one button missing down the front), long brown necktie, two piece suit in red and camel color tan felt (faded and small moth holes here and there), knit socks aged tan, and matching faded brown and red tie shoes. There is no tag or label. The felt cloth body along with the felt clothing is aged, soiled, dusty and has some tan aged spots (foxing) to the hands and legs. Please notice that the molded nose has been “dented/flattened” and missing some felt. The felt body has largely escaped moths but there are a few small craters, but no holes. Literally all the small moth holes are in the brown/camel felt. The eyes have all the paint even though they are reflecting the camera flash. There is a little bit of paint wear to the top lip. The Lenci characteristics included are blond mohair wig rooted to the scalp (some thin areas to the scalp), separate fingers with the center two fingers sewn together defined by a row of stitching, side glancing eyes, double layer felt ears, zig zag seam down the back of the neck, two pink dots on the lower lip, two eye dots to the painted eyes, tab jointed shoulders and disc joints at the hips. No odor. Needs cleaning.
