The First Mate
with antique box display

This is an original ornament made by me, with antique and vintage parts.

He's a real favorite! Made from a collectible candy lantern, small metal ship, vintage compass and more.

The doll head used is damaged German Bisque from the 1800s. He has a paper hat that I made from a folded antique map. Please treat this carefully. The main area is filled with hot glue, so sturdier- but the little side corners are just paper to paper.

Including the lantern's loop he is about 8" tall.

The box display is 10 1/2" tall. I added a hand-carved, hand-painted wooden water piece at the base.

Thank you for looking!
