He stands at 5.25” tall, with a bisque socket head, with glass set eyes, with painted and molded facial features: painted upper and lower lashes, a closed mouth, and tapered brows. He has his original brown mohair wig in a short style. He stands on his original composition body, and is adorned in a cute Scottish costume. We have not removed the costume, as he is sewn in, and we do not want to compromise the fabrics.
MARKS: W [back of head, incised]
CONDITION: Overall good! The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The painting and modeling of features is good; it should be noted that with very small bisque dolls, it became more difficult for the doll artists to create high levels of detail with the very small bisque heads; his features are therefore not as crisp as those seen in larger dolls. Still, he’s rather adorable. His wig is good and intact, although he does not have a pate, and thus the wig seems to sink in a little. The composition body is good, with only minor and typical age wear; the same goes for the original Scottish costume. Overall, he’s a great doll!
*Please note that the price shown for this doll was calculated by factoring in the doll’s condition carefully. The doll’s condition is described fully in the "Condition" paragraph above. Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item.
