I've purchased a few things for my revolving inspiration collection. Here's a guy I don't know much about, but maybe you do?
This is a 12" figure is carved from wood. He is jointed at the shoulders and the hips. He reminds me a bit of some mechanics I knew back in the early 60's with the matching pants and shirt. I bet he once had a hat....maybe a cowboy hat? I know nothing about this doll. He is not marked on his back. He can stand on his two feet. :-) If you have any guesses about who made this doll, or his vintage. I'm guessing 30's to 60's. The cloth is cotton and the belt is a braided trim which is not elastic. The "tie" is made of ribbon and may be melting a bit - so not sure if silk or rayon. I've shared some pictures to help out.
If you have any information about this doll, please share in the comment section... Thanks! ~ Dixie
This doll seems to me to be wearing a uniform of some sort. Did the Boy Scouts have a brown uniform with red ties? Belts? Interesting doll!ReplyDelete
