This is such a rare little doll, I have never seen another quite like him.
He dates from around 1840.
He is 7.5 inches tall.
His head is papier mache, with moulded bonnet with inserted feather.
His body is a fully jointed wooden body but with a taufling middle section, this is made of leather, I have never seen this on this type of body before but it is clearly totally original, and makes him so moveable and able to sit in different positions.
He wears a fabulous early red silk jacket with gold thread embroidery and red velvet trousers, all contemporary to the doll.
He is in good original condition with no damage.
