This is an unusual 5.25" tall antique wooden alien head male doll with turban. The term 'alien head' has been applied by collectors to wooden dolls with applied papier mache over the heads to add details and special features, and that seems to be the case with this fellow. The doll is otherwise all wood except for his wool pants. The doll was probably once part of a larger toy. His arms are permanently fixed in an outstretched position and they do not turn at the shoulders. His upper legs inside the pants are not attached at the hips and float freely within. His character face is painted to have a long mustache. The torso and arms are painted red orange with buttons down the front. His lower legs are painted white with black shoes.
Condition is overall good with only modest surface wear and tear.
this unusual early wooden doll would make an interesting addition to a doll collection, and perhaps even a doll house population.
