In the price guides the SFBJ 237 listed as being up to 17-19” tall, but this boy is 22.5” tall! He is so lifelike and brings such joy to a collection. He has molded blonde hair with waves. His eyes are the jewel-like brown paperweight eyes that the 230 series dolls are known for. The open mouth with teeth has an engaging smile that is contagious. His body is a high quality French body with the original finish and minimal wear. The sailor pants and jacket may be original to him. They are made of a heavy muslin material and the pants are tightly attached around his waist so I didn’t remove them. The striped undershirt and hat were added later, unprofessionally made from some sort of ticking material. His socks are antique and the shoes are vintage oilcloth. He is being offered at a reduced price due to some flaws. There is a hairline on the back of his neck and another on the front, both photographed. There is also a cheek rub. The rest of his bisque is good and the body is in generally very good condition. This is a scarce mold # and quite larger than any others I have seen. This young fellow looks great escort for some of your girls. And even with his flaws he is a real charmer.
