Little Jack, the very collectible Cracker Jack Doll, by Elke Hutchens, Doll Artist, and issued by Danbury Mint, is a seventeen inch porcelain doll from 1998.
Little Jack is in mint condition. He has his Danbury Mint Tag hanging from his left arm, but he does not have his original box or any certificates. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way he has also lost the Cracker Jack Box with its prize which originally came with him. I know prizes are available on the internet but I don't know about the box.
This very collectible Cracker Jack Doll has inset brown eyes, with applied upper lashes and painted lower lashes. They are not sleep eyes. His cheeks are rosy and his lips are very full and pink. He wears a blonde wig which has straight, soft hair falling to below his ears and with bangs on his forehead. His legs, lower arms and hands, head, neck, and shoulder plate are made of fine porcelain. The rest of his body is snugly stuffed.
He is wearing an adorable sailor suit, in a style from long ago. It is navy blue in color and has a jacket, short pants, white tee shirt, long stockings and stylish shoes.
Little Jack's jacket has long sleeves, a large sailor collar with two rows of bright red braid trim around it, and six gold buttons down the front. The bright red tie goes around his neck, under the collar, and ties in front. His short pants have two stripes of the red braid trim down the side and two smaller gold buttons beside the trim. His stockings are dark gray and feel like wool. His shoes are dark navy blue, topped with white spats which button on the sides with four small pearly buttons. His white tee shirt has two rows of red braid around the neck and a navy blue anchor applique on the top of the front.
Little Jack wears a wonderful navy blue hat on top of his blonde hair. The hat has a large red pom pom on the top, and a band of bright red grosgrain ribbon around the crown which trails about three inches down the back of his head.
This collectible doll is incised on the back of his head and the back of his shoulder plate with the written name of Elke Hutchens. He is in wonderful condition. If you wish, his stand can come with him.
Thank you for looking!
