Rare and, I believe, highly collectable vintage doll head of a boy made in a very limited edition by Royal Copenhagen Denmark. This head was part of a limited edition reissue of an 1840's original - made using the same moulds, which is why it's considered to be a'reissue' rather than a straightforward reproduction. Royal Copenhagen only produced 3 different heads - a large lady, a smaller lady and a boy. They were produced between c. 1975-81 (a very short production period) and the fact that this one is marked on the inside apparently dates it to the earlier 1975?
Later models were marked on the back of the shoulder blade. Stamped in blue with the familiar wavy line Royal Copenhagen mark, the painter's initials and the numbers 5250 and'Denmark' in green.
Measures: approx 3.75" high x 2.5" at base of shoulders. Condition: perfect and as new apart from the smallest rubbing to brown'hair' paint on back of head (please see pics). And please note: any other apparent light patches are simply reflected light and not rubbing!
