This charming little boy may be petite at 12.5" tall, but he'll take up a great big space in your heart. He's truly one of a kind -- it's rare to find such a superb black model in his original costume, much less in a polished cotton Moroccan ensemble such as this! His lustrous dark, fired in complexion will set him apart, even in an advanced collection of racially diverse dolls. I myself collect dolls of various cultures and if I did not have a very similar Moroccan boy, you can be assured that this little treat would not be here for sale! That said, I would be hard-pressed to find a Gebruder Kuhnlenz boy quite like this again, he is a very special example.
~This delightful boy is available on layaway, up to seven months -- so you can take your time to pay for him! Just give us a call at 718-859-0901 to discuss payment options, or to get an in-hand description! And he ships for free in the US with shipping credit abroad.~
Bisque socket head, with fired dark brown complexion and blushed lips. Dark glass original sleep eyes, tapered brows, open mouth with four upper teeth. Original black wig, under a cream cotton turban with goldenrod braiding. He's on his original composition body, straight limbs, painted to match the skin tone. He stands at 12.5" tall, and wears his fabulous original Moroccan-style antique costume: a cream cotton-weave shirt with covered buttons down the front, and a bright crimson wool vest with white decorative banding. A burnt orange sash ties around his waist, while he wears a pair of dark wool trousers with side striping. White cotton stockings are sewn on, with black covered buttons and cotton slippers/shoes. Remember, his costume is all sewn on!
MARKS: 34 20
CONDITION: Excellent. This darling, all original boy has a head free of hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, and has no flakes or chips to his composition hands. His costume is 100% original, antique, and is all well intact, and looks fabulous. Such original dolls are always a great find, having maintained their personality and character throughout the many years. With his unique presentation, he'll be sure to stand out among the other dolls in your collection!
