I cant tell you much about the doll. He has a carved wooden body, and a bisque character head that reminds me of the work of Cuno Otto Dressel. His head is just marked with a 14. His skin tone is a bit dark, reminding me of Italian or even Middle Eastern ethnicity. There is a wire in the back that will move his arms. His clothes, I believe, are original to him. I have made the hat, which is now pinned on. I have a reimagined him as a magician with a white rabbit. The rabbit is vintage, not antique. Overall, he seems to be in pretty good condition. There are a number of pinholes in his wooden feet. His head appears to be in good condition. He is really great! Again, I wish I could tell you more about his history and maker. Very unique doll for your collection! Measures about 9 inches tall. I have more antique toy and doll items listed so please check out my other auctions!
