I wish I knew more about this sweet doll, he has string like a marionette, but his strings are rather thin, so I am assuming he was made to look this way. The doll stands 20" tall. He is really cute and he has painted and carved features. He is sure to bring back some good memories. Please take a moment to view our other items.
