Item Description: Translate description
36" (91 cm.) Of ebony-black felt with pressed and painted facial features, swivel head, narrow side-glancing brown eyes, accented nostrils, red stitched and padded red lips, black curly mohair wig wrapped in a lime green felt turban decorated with embroidery and "jewels", slender black felt torso, jointed long slender black felt arms, and very elongated long black felt legs with jointed knees. Condition: near mint. Marks: Lenci (two original paper labels, one pencil noted "260"). Comments: Lenci, a standing version of the same model appeared in the 1924 catalog, also identified as model 260, and named "Sam", described as "The Sultan's Moorish Guard"; the 260 model was likely made for one or two years only. Value Points: the rarity of the model is rivaled by its pristine condition, and the extraordinary detail of costume, with vibrant appliques and embroidery on the green felt vest, sash, pants, slippers, and gloves, and with one original gilt-painted wooden earring, and a hand-carved wooden figural necklace.
