He is a gorgeous Parisian Gent that I've enjoyed having in my collection; his eyes are striking against his white complexion with rosy cheeks and blond curly hair. He is an antique shoulder head china on a very nice vintage cloth replacement body with clothing that was created especially for him.
He measures about 16" tall and is not without a flaw, his nose was professionally repaired and a bit of paint is missing off the back bottom shoulder plate; however, that cannot be seen with his jacket on, and the clothes are sewn onto the newer body so I only found this when taking the pictures. Very minor to mention is a tad of rubbing of the paint to the back of his head, only seen if closely inspected and expected for the age of the doll which is about a little later than middle part of 1800s. The hands and legs/feet on him are a matching white china.
He has a hard time keeping his socks and shoes on, so I used a little piece of tape to keep them up. He has the sweetest expression and I love him. The Parisians with the set glass eyes are much harder to find than the painted ones. He displays beautifully.
