Description

The porcelain figurine depicts a young, beardless Abraham Lincoln, who wears a ruffled shirt, tie, trousers, and shoes. His pants are held up with suspenders, but Lincoln's left suspender hangs loosely over his hip rather than on his shoulder. Lincoln's proper right hand is balled into a fist while his proper left hand holds a book. The figurine is finished in a hue of white and stands on an inscribed circular base.
