He has a bisque socket head, with molded and painted features; blue glass sleep eyes, painted lower lashes and real upper lashes, feathered brown brows, and an open mouth with two upper teeth and a felt tongue. He stands at 18” tall on an unusual toddler body; his elbows and knees are jointed, with straight wrists and bent lower arms. He wears a brown human hair wig, in a short straight style.
He wears a cream wool jacket with a handmade lace collar, white embroidery, and a big brown bow, with a one-piece garment of cream wool trousers and an attached white cotton shirt. On his feet are a pair of original antique russet-brown socks and brown leather shoes, and on his head is a tan, russet, and brown beret.
MARKS: ABG / 1361 / 40 / Made in Germany [incised, back of head]
D.R.G.M. [stamped, back of torso]
CONDITION: Excellent! The bisque head has no cracks, chips, hairlines, or restoration. The glass eyes have good pupil alignment, and sleep well, while the painting and detailing to the bisque is crisp and colorful. The body is excellent, with only the most minor and typical of wear. Truly, the body has held up wonderfully over the years! The costume is great, with only minor wear, particularly moth holes. This is to be expected with antique and vintage doll clothing, especially clothing made of wool, but overall, the costume is great and presents well! This boy doll is in overall exceptional condition!
