This little doll was designed by doll artist Sylvia Natterer for the Gotz doll company in Germany. His name is Nathan and he is about 15 inches tall, all vinyl with joints at his neck, shoulders, and hips. He has rooted red hair and painted blue/green eyes.  He is wearing his complete original outfit of shirt with a car print, plaid short pants, yellow hooded rain jacket, bucket hat, and white fabric shoes.

Natterer has a very distinctive style for her dolls. They have soft, ambiguous expressions with a gentle, thoughtful look.

All Natterer dolls (as far as I know) have painted eyes and painted facial details.

Here’s Nathan with his hat off. He’s had it on for awhile so there’s a bit of a bump in his hair where the hat pressed on it.
