CONDITION: Generally excellent. The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, or restoration. He does have a tiny little chip to the right upper eyelid. He does have some tiny rubs to the right cheek and chin side, but these are not that noticeable. The glass eyes sleep well, and have good pupil alignment. The body is very good, with only some minor surface crazing and cracks to the finish, and a tiny bit of wear to his toes and a chip to his left big tie, but he otherwise has sturdy stringing, and a nice original finish and paintjob, and original GERMANY mark on the torso. The wig is soft and supple, and good for an antique, original wig. The costume is good, with no issues. Overall, this is a beautiful doll!
