Charming googly boy full of life, 7 1/2” ( 17cm ) tall , bisque socket head with molded and painted hair, smiling closed mouth, wide eyed with intaglio painted eyes glancing to his left and slightly downward, with incised markings in back “ R. 49 A. 17/0 “. He is all original on a crude papier-mache five- piece toddler body with bare feet, wearing original white gauze one piece costume and matching hat, blue socks, and white paper shoes. He is made by Recknagel of Alexandrienthal, Thuringia, Germany, circa 1910-1920. Clothes are practically sewn around the body, but it is not repaired nor repainted so as such we will just show a portion of the front torso as he no longer has any undergarments. A sweet googly and although not expensive, is not as common as one might assume, and certainly rarer than an AM323 googly and yet far less costly!………….SOLD
