Old Antique Vintage Composition Oriental Chinese Character Doll W Unique Horse:
I am pleased to offer you this "extraordinary" Oriental figure on his magnificent horse. Reference shows similar dolls being known as Oriental Nobleman, and Opera dolls from the late 1800s into early 1900s. I do not know the past history or makersince they are from a doll estate but I will try to describe this rider and horse the best I can. There is a very old tag/card attached to this doll with a "7" on it, it is very worn, I have shown both sides in photos. This doll figure measures 9-1/2" tall being a composition head, hands with long fingers intact on composition wood body covered with elaborate Oriental costume. His headdress is removable, he has painted black hair with wonderful painted facial features, a "Hakata" face.Feet are wood being molded boots to match outfit. Holds wooden stick that needs a little glue restoration, there is clear tape over a small piece of this stick. I do not know if any items are missing from this elaboratedoll. This doll figure was made to "sit" on this horse with legs apart there is a metal piece that enables him to sit secure on the horse, see photo. Horse is truly a "work of art" measures about 8" tall. He is covered in a cloth felt type material, possibly being wood or papier mache under the cloth. He has black glass eyes, mouth and nose have the look of leather but could be wood or papier-mâché, his feet are this material also, there is a bell around his neck. There is a hole in his upper back to hold the rider. The red blanket has a worn name on it. There is Oriental writings of some sort on the body of this horse under the felt cloth, see photo. Some overall wear throughout rider and horse but nothing terrible. They Display well, areunique,and would be a "Treasure" for a collection or display!I have taken plenty of photos, please look at my photos as they will serve as part of this description.
