Boy with composition swivel head and lower arms. With joints at shoulders and hips and nicely molded open/closed mouth, cute little nose, painted. His body is hard stuffed sawdust and he wears his.
Original tan cotton overalls with turkey red cotton shirt and original black shoes. He has beautifully molded and painted black hair. The most unusual part of this doll's history is that he has about twelve hand written autographs in brown ink nick names, etc. Neatly printed on his overalls such as: "Toby Baker", "Caye" Woodworth, "Tiny", "Eunice", "Charlotte", "Tiss", "Jinky Lawton" and others.Perhaps he was a high school or college memento. Very good overall condition except for some paint chips at the back of his head (touched up long ago). Who made a very hard (glue based) line of composition doll heads for Horsman. Effanbee and Louis Amberg & Son.
