SALE GERMAN MINIATURE JOINTED BOY DOLL FROM 1880! Take a look at this excellent German Miniature jointed boy doll from 1880, measuring only 3 1/4" tall. Clearly marked Germany and 5580, this little guy is just about perfect as far as I can see. He has rosy cheeks(Some photos have a light glare), dark painted hair and shoes, and is jointed by some metal type of pins, almost as if he could have been a part of a puppet or marionette show.
I thought that this little guy was wooden, and I'm still not sure, except I saw some similar dolls that were called bisque. If it is bisque, it has a shinier finish than I'm used to seeing in bisque figurines, etc., but it may be. This one fits inside a box like you would ship a brooch in, so he's not very big at all. I purchased this from the estate of a longtime antique dealer here in KY, and I do believe he's just been stored away for years, because he is in such excellent condition! You won't be disappointed if you love the miniatures. He would be PERFECT for a DOLLHOUSE! I see many girl dolls, but not nearly as many boy dolls that can compare to this one.
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please be sure to let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed. I also have a couple of wonderful antique china head dolls from this same dealer, so please take a look in my shop.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless You ! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
