Kathy, the soldier or cavalryman is wearing the "doughboy" type helmet worn by WW I US and British soldiers. This dates it too 1914 and later. The same helmets were standard USN issue during WW II and Civil Defense wore them in the 50s, 60s, 70s, etc.

The soldier was probably made at home using molds, and hot (molten) lead.  As a kid my Dad and I made soldiers like him in the 1950s. The pouring was unprofessional and as a result many like yours resulted. They were unpainted like yours.  The poorly formed ones were usually re-melted. 

Lead poisoning scares put an end to this hobby.

Curious about this toy soldier I found at GW.

Can't decide if he's from World War I or Spanish American War.

He's heavy metal, appears to have come from a mold.

Doesn't stand alone. Is 2inches tall and 3 inches long.

Any experts out there?

Comment by kathy Curnutte on August 2, 2014 at 7:57am

Thank you Craig

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on August 2, 2014 at 5:33am

Okay - probably a tourist souvenir out of wood imitating the gourd.

Found a box of old dolls at a garage sale

On the left is a plastic one piece doll 3.25 inches tall

The two dolls with clothing are also plastic with open shut eyes.

Limbs not attached.

Then there is a 2 inch bisque with hands in pockets, made in Japan stamped on back.

A jointed ( arms) held with wires of bisque.

A frozen Charlotte without hands

Last, a male ( I think that appears to come from a mold,has seams on sides. Don't know what he is made of but not bisque.

Can anyone identify and date?
