This charming young boy in his original sailor costume is from the character series of the German dollmaker Armand Marseille. He has blue sleep eyes, high quality bisque and artfully drawn features. He has a fully articulated German composition body.
His bisque head is perfect without any damage or restoration and is marked 700-1. He has a mohair wig. The 700 series is thought to represent the highest quality of the Marseille firm.
