He stands at 24” tall, with a bisque socket head, with painted and molded features: brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, feathered raised brows, an open mouth with four upper teeth, and a dimpled chin. He stands on his antique fully-jointed body, and wears an original mohair wig in a short, brown style.
He wears a matching brown suede hat and pair of trousers, with button-fastened suspenders, for a unique and classy look. He wears a cream silk shirt underneath with a button-up closure, and a white chemise and pantaloons, with white socks and leather brown lace-up boots.

CONDITION: The bisque is good, with high quality modeling and painting of features, and no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. The glass eyes sleep well, and are aligned nicely in the head. The face does have a few minor pepper specks and imperfections in the bisque, but this is not uncommon. The body is great, with original finish, sturdy stringing, although there are some areas of wear and touchups, and flaking to the finish. The hands are repainted. The costume is good, with only minor and typical age wear overall, although the silk shirt does have some moderate wear to the shoulders, due to the delicate nature of the fabric. Overall, he’s a great boy, and is bound to please!
