MARKS: 585 / 5 / -BP Crossed Swords- / Germany [Bahr & Proschild]
CONDITION: Generally Excellent. His bisque head has a wig pull on the forehead and some inherent spots, but is free from hairlines, cracks, chips, and restoration (see photos). The painting is excellently detailed. His glass eyes sleep well, and have a good pupil alignment. The body has some areas of repaint and the varnish is scrubbed but in otherwise excellent condition. The antique costume is good, with minor to moderate wear and very nice mother-of-pearl antique buttons. Overall, a charming little character boy!
