Truly exceptional in every way, this delightful antique boy doll perfectly captures the quintessential quality Parian doll. He stands at 17” tall, with a perfectly-molded parian shoulder head, with precise plate details, in the fashion of a necktie and collared shirt, accomplished by delicate molding, painting, and glazing. His desirable Goldsmith body has that lovely blue corset torso, and he even has leather and cotton detailed boots. He wears a delightful little costume, and is in great condition overall -- there is no reason to not snatch up this top-shelf beauty right now! Don’t forget, he is available on a layaway plan!

He has a parian bisque shoulder head, with painted and molded details: blue painted eyes, blond tapered brows, closed mouth, and blushed cheeks, with molded and painted hair in a swept-back gentleman’s style, with exposed ears (a desirable feature). He has detailed collar and necktie features on his shoulder plate, a unique departure from the common blank shoulder plate. He is on an antique Goldsmith body, standing at 17” tall, with blue corset torso, china arms, and leather and cotton shoes with socks.
He wears an exquisite antique black velvet piping overlay jacket with a pale green cotton base, with brown velvet collar, and black velvet trousers, and antique white cotton undershirt.
CONDITION: The parian head and plate are absolutely free of cracks, chips, restoration or hairlines. The cloth body is great, with only typical and minor wear; some minor fraying to the boot details, but overall, the body is great, with sturdy stitching and a good cream color. The costume is good, with only minor and typical wear for antique attire. Overall, he is a fabulous example of a detailed parian boy!
