This is a paper mache (Papier-mâché) male Santos figure. He stands just a little over 17 inches tall. He has dark brown molded hair, rosy lips, and is dressed in blue.
He is molded on to a wooden stand, which is bolted down to a wooden platform. The doll, bracket and stand are all washed in a lovely antique style patina.
All dolls are crafted to appear antique in nature, which may include some of the following: distressed or chipped paint, minor splits in wood, variations in paint shade, variations in joint resistance, exposed wood in joints, and other artistic processes, yielding different results on every doll. Although all dolls are remarkably close in appearance, there may be signs of aging that are not identical to other dolls of the same model. This is considered character, and not a flaw.
All photos are from our studio collection. Your doll will be very, very similar to the Santos that is shown.
