My husband and I found this little guy in our local Goodwill and, marked at $20, we just had to buy him. We stripped him down and he is completely unmarked... Accordingly, we are very curious as to where he came from.
He's a five piece doll: the torso and head are one piece; his arms and legs are jointed to the torso at the hips and shoulders with the old "rubber band joints" I've seen in dolls before.
His body is baby like in that he has a belly pudge. His head has the molded hair, but it is painted on, as are his eyes, eyebrows, mustache and lips.
His outfit reminds me of a matador and is made of felt. Since the very top of his head was left unpainted, I believe he once had a hat on. The 'shoes,' too, are just painted on.
He stands approximately 8" tall.
Any help or suggestions on where to learn more about him would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
