Composition Character Doll

A composition character doll is one of the more interesting composition dolls to work on because they do not follow traditional form for other dolls.  In looking at a character doll you immediately notice the personality of each wonderful face.  This composition character doll had been in the same family since purchase and had been stored away for many years.  At some point pieces and parts of the head fell away and someone tried to save it by filling in the missing pieces with gobs of filler and assorted glues and them painted over the whole thing.  To bring this composition character doll, affectionately called the Dutch Boy, the composition had to be completely stripped to the bare wood and missing pieces has to be refabricated to match the original head.
