This very rare doll is 15 inches tall. It is marked very well - "25 France SFBJ 262 Paris 6" - (see photo).It was made around the 1920's during the'art series' by SFBJ. He has brown sleep eyes and with an open mouth with two upper teeth. He has most of his original eye lashes remaining. The bisque head does not have any hairlines or cracks or repainting as examined by a black light.
He has a wonderful original finish toddler body. There is one very tiny vertical crack in the right leg.
I love the thin fingers of these dolls - so realistic. He wears: antique leather shoes and brown socks; newer underpants; white bib; darling sailor suit; original cork pate with original wig; and labeled "Pegoud" sailor hat.He is a wonderful example of this rare SFBJ model.
