A Very Rare Black Servant or Coachman
I have seen this doll described as a coachman who unloads the luggage from a coach and brings the luggage into the house. (Evelyn Ackerman's book on dollhouse dolls, refers to him as a servant). He is a young boy and is dressed in his red wool coat which is trimmed in a gold cord and black wool trousers that have the same gold coding on the sides. His black hair is more shiny and has tight curls when I hold him in my hands. His white vest with buttons and a bow tie are all intact. He is one of the rarest of the Black dolls.
Measurements: 5-3/4" tall
