This is an AM model number 252, a character doll known as Top Knot. He has molded, painted hair which comes to a peak or point on top. Painted googly side glancing eyes are blue. Painted eyebrows and smiling closed mouth. Antique german body with original glossy finish. Some repaint at bottom of torso, where leg socket is located, and some repaint around neckwell of body. Typical wear to paint at some areas, such as hands, leg sockets. Incised marking on back of neck. Rare small size of 12 inches. Dressed in antique nautical clothing with some fading to the red and some overall soiling or aging to clothing. Antique socks have some wear (one would benefit from some hand mending). Vintage black shoes. A very sweet and unusual googly doll. (Litho blocks not included in sale.)
I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please
contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new
please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all. Please note, if an item is returned
within our 3 day return window, your payment will be returned, minus a 3% restocking fee (which represents credit card fees
which are never refunded to us by the processing companies). This applies only to orders which have been paid for via
Mastercard, VISA, etc. We do not issue refunds for shipping.
Layaway is available. A 20 percent non refundable deposit will secure the item and we will work with you regarding the length of the layaway.
We are fairly flexible. No refunds on layaway.
Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid.
USPS shipping rates (both domestic and international) continue to increase. I ship based on size of box (anything over 12" is considered oversized and charged a surcharge by USPS),
weight, insurance and priority, first class or express options. I will refund any excess you have paid. I do combine shipping for multiple purchases.
