If you are looking for a lovely and cute German character to add to your collection, this boy is just what the doctor ordered! A delightful character face with intaglio brown eyes, an original finish non-slanted hip toddler body, and a fabulous presentation worthy costume -- these are all some of the fantastic traits that this boy comes equipped with! He does have a boo-boo to the head, which is why he's a great opportunity for the more conservative buyers! Minty versions sell for $2500, so this is a real opportunity for you perceptive buyers, who don't mind a little damage. Character boys like these occupy my collection cabinets, offering great presentation and are a nice distinction from the girl dolls. Make a mark on your collection with this Kley & Hahn character!

Bisque socket head, in a pale and smooth finish, with brown intaglio painted eyes. Molded open/closed mouth in a nice character style. He is on his lovely antique wood & composition body, in the toddler style, with the straight thigh joints (as opposed to the more traditional slanted hip design), and separate ball jointed shoulders, a nice feature. He stands at 15.5" tall.
This boy wears a lovely antique and original mohair wig, in a dark brownish blond, that has greened slightly with age. Costume is vintage. He is topped with a brown velvet flat cap, and wears a cream cotton jacket with button up front and embroidery and lace trim. Underneath goes a cream cotton pair of pantaloons, chemise and onesie, and a pair of lace socks with red suede shoes.
CONDITION: Restored spider crack to the right side of his face, next to the eye. It appears as a slight darkening to the side of the face, where the restorer tried to paint over. Otherwise, the head is great, with lovely modeling and painting of features. That character "look" is captured very well, especially with those alluring intaglio eyes. The wood & composition body is great, with the all original finish, and good tight stringing for poses. The costume is good, with nice presentation, and no real damage to worry about, only minor age wear.
