. Here is another wonderful doll, c.1920, that is in need of some TLC which would consist of cleaning, very little repair and sewing, which would be a top jacket to go over his Original black pants. The doll is 13 1/2 inches standing on a painted wood base (13in. w/o base). His head and shoulder plate, arms to hands and feet are composition. His Fabulous Face is so expressive with painted smiling eyes, high cheekbones, opening wide smiling mouth with two teeth, and creases around his mouth. In the mouth, it looks like he has two more teeth in the back, making it look like he lost all his other teeth, I believe this was done to make him look like an older man, which they have succeeded in doing. He has a black painted on cap, and underneath, salt & pepper straight hair. He is wearing brass wired rim glasses on his face. The black pants on him are original. He needs to be wearing a jacket of some sort to be complete. He carries in his hand his original Asian fan. As was mentioned, this neat doll just needs a little cleaning, repair (padding) to arms, and a jacket of Asian type and you will have yourself a really special doll here. I am not handy nor creative, so I have to pass this great find up. But for someone who is an artist, and can sew, fix up and repair, then he is a nice project to think about, expescially at this price. This could be a money maker or nice to keep for oneself. Doll has no odors, and comes from a smoke free home. Being sold as is.
