This 12 ½ inch tall gentleman, circa the late 18th or early 19th century, has a wooden head, hands, and lower legs with carved boots. The body is cloth with a wire armature. The clothing is original with metal trim. There is some slight fading and a few worn spots on the clothing but, considering the age, is in very good condition. One of the most amazing things about this doll is that fact that he still has his fabulous hat complete with gold crown and pearl decoration. I also adore his profile with a great character nose and jutting beard. His carved boots also show great character and attention to detail.
