He has a bisque socket head, with side-glancing blue sleep eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, small light brown brows, an unusual small snub nose, and a watermelon mouth. He stands at 9” tall on his original five-piece composition toddler body, with wire joints and painted red single-strap shoes with orange textured socks, and he wears his original light brown mohair wig, in a short straight style. The torso has a layer of white paint, and the tops of the arms are unpainted; both are unvarnished.
He is dressed in his original two-piece ensemble, consisting of a shirt and short pants in blue and white striped cotton. The shirt is decorated with red ribbon with white borders and a white geometric pattern, along the sleeves, square-cut collar with a short length of ribbon running down the left side, and a belt at the waist, and two metal rivets, one on the bottom of the decorative stripe, and the other attaching the belt to the shirt. On his head, he is wearing an antique rust-colored corduroy hat, with a folded-up brim and a red pompom on a long string.
CONDITION: The bisque head of this precious Googly is free of any cracks, chips, hairlines, or restoration, with fine facial modeling with that mischievous Googly expression and one-of-a-kind 241 modeling. The eyes are positioned well in the side-glancing Googly fashion, and sleep well, with excellently painted eyelids. The original composition body is in good condition; the wire joints are slightly loose, and the body has expected age wear, but it is in sturdy condition, with no scuffs or chips to the painted shoes. The original costume has a few moth holes and rust spots, but is in otherwise great condition. He is definitely the most endearing Googly I have ever had! This is your chance to own a great Googly today!
