KREISS -- ELEGANT HEIR "CUDDLE UP A LITTLE CLOSER"
This is a difficult to find Kreiss item – a figurine from the Elegant Heir line! This troubadour has lost his paper hang tag but per reference book, he’s the “Cuddle up a little closer” heir. Stamped on the bottom of one foot “Kreiss & Co.”. Measures 7 ¼” tall and is in very good condition – one rhinestone pupil has been replaced because one is blue/green while the other one is clear. I can feel some tiny rough places on the rim of his hat (I would say they are tiny dings that have been color touched up), not visible but can be felt. Roger and I examined this item very closely prior to purchasing – we concentrated on his nose, feet, and guitar – they’re fine. What we didn’t notice is the handle of his pistol had a clean break and glue repair! Obviously not detracting or noticeable but I have adjusted price to reflect this imperfection and our oversight!
