My my, this boy is unbeatable in terms of presentation! He's a great condition antique china, with golden blond hair, and a pale facial expression that draws you in! He's adorned in a great costume, from his brown trousers, to his original red leather sewn-on boots with six-button sides, and to his lovely blue tailcoat! He will look wonderful in your collection cabinet, and is sure to draw attention. I personally love the china boys, as they have so much unique spunk about them, and yet can still dress to the nines and offer great presentation. Make this fabulous boy your very own!

He has a sweet china shoulder head, in a pale milky white and smooth glossy finish. Crisply-molded features are accented with ice blue eyes, painted black tapered brows, while his delicate closed mouth is puckered with two blushed lips, and framed by two chunky cheeks. His blond hair is molded into a short curly style, partially-exposing his ears. He is on his original cloth body, with his newer unglazed porcelain hands with open palms. Striped stockings, and red leather sewn-on boots with six-button sides. He's adorned in a custom costume: a slate blue tailcoat with a nice silhouette, a embroidered cream vest, a white shirt with tucking front much like a tuxedo shirt, black necktie with decorative pin, and brown trousers. The jacket, vest, and tie are removable, while the pants and shirt are still sewn on.
Marks: 1214 # 5
Condition: Excellent. China head is completely clear of such hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration as we have endeavored to check under his collar very closely without ruining his delightful costume. The modeling and painting is superior, and this particular head is a real beauty. The body appears to be original, but the costume is sewn on pretty tight, and we didn't want to rip it apart by undoing the stitches. If you want more details on the body, we would be happy to provide more precise details!
