Charming 15" Antique China Boy w/Original Body and Leather Arms, with Cute Costume & Presentation
This charming chap is exactly what you need. An antique china boy with black molded curls and a darling face in milky white china, on his original antique body with original leather arms…all adorned in a cute wool costume. He is sure to please. Make some space in your cabinet for this adorable antique, and read on to see what he can offer you and your prized collection!
*Feel free to email us or call us at 718-859-0901 for payment details, or an in-hand description of his condition and appearance!*
He has a milky white china shoulder head, with softly molded black curls, with a middle part, in a short style. His ice blue eyes have dark tapered brows atop, along with a cute nose and closed mouth underneath, framed by two lightly blushed cheeks. Partially exposed ears. He is on his original cloth body, standing at 15” tall. He has his original leather arms, and printed stockings, with stitched-on booties.
He wears a simple but cute costume, with a matching set of brown wool jacket with button closure and trousers, along with a white antique cotton undershirt with goldenrod necktie.
Condition: Very Good. Small, minor imperfection in the glaze on the left side of his face, just underneath the temple, forming a slight craze – note that this is in the glaze itself, and does not seem to extend into the actual china. Otherwise his head is free of any excuses, with no hairlines, chips, or restoration. Modeling is adorable, while his body is original, with some minor soil wear (to be expected). Leather arms have some extensive wear; the right hand is missing completely, with tearing near the seam where it connects to the shoulder. Holes in the cloth fabric of his left leg, in the back, revealing the horsehair interior. Overall, though, he’s a good charmer with cute presentation.
