This 9 inch tall man has a wax head, lower arms and lower legs. He is mounted on a wooden base. The doll wears his original cotton clothing with a bag attached to his back. The doll is in good condition with some wear to the clothing. I don't know if the clothing is meant to look tattered or if it is worn from age—probably a little of both. The doll has great detail especially in the face, hands, and feet. There is small area of wax that is missing from the back of the left ankle and on the tip of the nose. He may have had a hat and pipe at some time. I am not sure when he would have been created but he does have some age to him. He is quite unique and would add an artistic element to any collection.
