Dapper Antique Tinted Bisque Boy 19" in Gentleman's Costume
Have the fainting couch nearby, because your china and parian ladies will be swooning at the sight of this gentleman! This sweet-faced bisque boy stands at 19" tall, with a lovely gentleman's costume that is suitable for any and all formal events. He has a lovely presentation, with a great tinted bisque head. The mark on the back of his head indicates that he was part of a collection at a museum for some time -- we're not surprised, he's that fabulous!
*Feel free to email us or call us at 718-859-0901 for payment details, or an in-hand description of his beauty!*
He has a sweet tinted bisque shoulder head, in a pale smooth finish. Crisply-molded features are accented with ice blue eyes, brown painted 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, exposing his ears. He's on a recovered body, standing at 19" tall. He wears a lime green ensemble, with a tailcoat with buttons, matching shirt with soutache down the front, and trousers. A lace bib goes around his neck.
Marks: -No marks, except for a museum-provided mark- 74.153/119 A
Condition: Perfect bisque. Head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with nice modeling and painting of features. Bisque hands are original, while the cloth body is recovered, but suitable. He does seem to have some minor dirty to the right side of the face. Costume is nice. Overall, you can't go wrong with this boy!
