He has molded and painted curly blond hair. He stands at 13.5” tall on his beautiful original kidskin body, with pin-jointed legs and fully-jointed wood and composition arms.
He wears a blue cotton shirt, with white featherstitching at the collar, sleeves, and hem, and a white tie closure at the front, with blue and white striped cotton pants. Underneath, he wears a white knitted undershirt and pantaloons. On his feet, he wears white knit socks and cream leather boots with black velveteen heels and toes. On his head, he wears a blue wool hat with a white silk ribbon.
MARKS: “K” in bell [may have other marks at the bottom of the plate]
CONDITION: Excellent! His bisque shoulder head is free of any hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, with top-quality modeling and painting of features. He has very few pepper spots and inherent marks in the bisque. His kidskin body has patches at both shoulders, but has otherwise held up very well over the many years, with only the most minor and typical signs of age wear. The wood and composition hands have been repainted in some places. 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.

Most dolls that are over 100 years old will have encountered issues over the years and perfection is rare when it comes to antiques.
