This character doll by Gebruder Heubach has always been a favorite of mine, due to his unique expression. This model by GH brings an extremely characterized face to this doll, making him a great way to add some variety to your cabinet! He also boasts a great presentation in a rich blue and white sailor costume -- you can just see him playing with toy sailboats in the pond during springtime walks in the park! He’ll make any collection pop!

His blue-grey intaglio eyes, tapered brows, open/closed laughing mouth with two molded bottom teeth, cute dimpled cheeks, smiling eyes expression, light blond molded and painted hair bring character to his face.
