Schoenau & Hoffmeister brings you this adorable little sailor boy, standing at 11”, ready to adorn your cabinet! He has a bisque socket head, with brown glass sleep eyes, and a straight-wristed body. He’s all decked out in his adorable sailor costume, so what’s not to love? Snatch him up now!
He has a bisque socket head, brown glass sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, tapered brown brows, and an open mouth with four upper teeth. He stands at 11” tall on a straight-wristed wood and composition body. He has a short brown curly wig.
He wears a vintage one-piece navy blue wool sailor jumpsuit, with white yarn stripes on the sleeves and collar, and a white and red yarn pompom-like bow tie. On his feet are a pair of knit cream socks, and black oilcloth shoes. On his head is a stiff white felt sailor hat, with an “I Serve” Red Cross tin pin attached.
MARKS: 25 / Germany / SH / PB [in five-pointed star] / 1006 / 10/0
CONDITION: The bisque head has no hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration, as well as high-quality modeling and painting of features, but has some rubs on the face and inherent marks in the bisque, mainly at the back of the head. The glass eyes sleep well. The body is in good condition, with only the most minor and typical age wear. The costume is good, with only minor wear; this is to be expected with antique and vintage doll clothing, but overall, the costume is great and presents well!
*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.
