Identifying a Porcelain Figurine?

I bought this figurine at a craft show at the mall in Miami, FL about 25 years ago. He is about 5 1/2" with beautifully painted eyes and hair that is curled and glued. He came sitting in a chair. He had nail on his foot and small blood spots. Very unusual. I would like to now if anyone has seen something similar to this one and who could have made it. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Without any identifying marks or names, this would be hard to place. What you can do is reach out to social media sites with pictures. There is someone out there who has the exact answer to this piece. There are so many at home for this challenge.

If you purchased this from a craft show it is a handmade item that a person did. Normally this is a ceramic mold that a person either poured or bought at a ceramic shop. The item was hand painted with low fire glaze and then low fired in a kiln.

I lived in Miami many years ago and I remember their annual craft shows were hugh and brought people from all over the country - buying and selling.

Everything had to be handmade and if a seller tried to displace something other than handmade, they would be disbarred from the show. I still have several items in my home that were made by 'someone' but I'll never know their name or where they came from.

I'm afraid your doll is going to fall into that category but it is certainly unique (looks like it has some damage?). Although it was purchased in a mall it was probably one of the local craft people and there were people living in Miami that had immigrated from all over the world.

Since you are not looking for value, I would suggest you post your question on one of the doll forums and maybe someone can tell something about it. You'll have to join to ask your question but that's no big deal.
