A doll in uniform. He could possibly be a kind of herald, as he carries a bugle decorated with a pennant and tassel. His head is plastic, with blue open-and-shut eyes and painted facial features. His hands, arms and legs are (probably) also made of plastic (but not visible), with his boots painted on in black. He wears a dark red felt-type fabric jacket which has gold-coloured metallic braid all around the edges, at the collar and at the yoke, and a dark brown metal badge in the centre of his chest. His trousers are of similar fabric, but beige. He also wears gauntlets made from the same fabric. His boot tops are made from a kind of black plasticised fabric. His hat is made from black felt and is a close-fitting cap with a small peak. The bugle is made of gold-coloured metal, the pennant being made from dark red silk with gold-coloured metallic braid around the edge and, in the centre, a badge similar to the one on the doll's jacket, and the tassel made from white silk thread. Some of the paint has worn off the boots.
