This boy has a bisque closed-dome socket head, a very desirable feature on an American Schoolboy doll, with big dark brown set glass eyes, light brown feathered brows and painted upper and lower lashes, and a closed mouth. He has wonderfully molded and painted medium blond hair, and exposed ears. He stands 12” tall on his original wood and composition straight-wrist body.
He wears an antique white long-sleeved shirt, with two buttons up the front, lace trim on the sleeves, and a large collar adorned with a blue bow, and white and blue antique striped pants with blue cuffs and an off-white sash. Underneath, he wears an antique white cotton undershirt with pink and white lace trim on the sleeves and collar, and lace down the front. On his feet are white rayon socks with blue stripes, and black and white modern-made leather shoes with brown laces. On his head is a vintage blue velvet beret with a small white pom-pom.
MARKS: 1 1/2
CONDITION: The bisque head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top quality modeling and painting of features. There is a pepper speck on his cheek. The composition body is in good condition; the left hand is missing the thumb and forefinger, and has been repainted. The costume is good, with only the most minor age-related wear.
