He stands at 15” tall, with a bisque shoulder head, with painted and molded features: blue intaglio eyes (a desirable feature), painted tapered brown brows, and an open-closed laughing mouth with two lower teeth, with blushed features over an overall pale complexion. He has painted light brown hair. He is on his beautiful original kidskin body, with pin-jointed thighs and gusset knees, bisque lower arms, and cloth lower legs.
He wears a one-piece blue and white plaid jumpsuit, with two white buttons down the front and white bric-a-brac trim. Underneath, he wears a white knitted combined undershirt and pantaloons, with blue variegation. On his feet, he wears black flocked boots. On his head, he wears a white crochet hat with a blue pom-pom.
MARKS: Made in Germany / Ges No. 216 Gesch./ 5/0
CONDITION: Excellent -- near to no issues! His bisque shoulder head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. He has some pepper spots and inherent marks in the bisque. His kidskin body has held up very well over the many years, with only the most minor and typical signs of age wear. The bisque hands are chipped; the right hand has small chips to the fingers, and the left hand is missing the thumb. The hands also show discoloration. The costume is good, as to be expected, with only minor and expected age wear.
Please be reminded that, as with the majority of antique dolls, this doll has some minor signs of age wear, that are to be expected with dolls of such old age.
*Please note that the price shown for this doll was calculated by factoring in the doll’s condition carefully. The doll’s condition is described fully in the "Condition" paragraph above. Any damage or flaws are carefully evaluated as to the manner in which they may reduce the retail value of this item. Unless there is some major issue we overlooked in the condition report, we decline to entertain any proposals for price reductions due to a less than perfect condition report. Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
