1920s18"antique Felt Cloth French/italy Gre-poir?lenci Doll Mohair Curls/organdy For Sale
Absolutely irresistible, this 18 inch antique cloth doll dates to the 1920's-1930's era. All original, except for the hair bow and waist ribbon, she is odor-free. While she presents well, she is not without flaw. They include, generalized soiling, especially to the areas of her "hair", pin-prick type holes on the upper left forehead, paint loss to the left eye and a head that although is quite secure on the body, has more tilt than when she was new. There is also 3mm wide and long moth hole on the inside of the left elbow and light moth damage to both lower legs. Made of organdy, her dress is trimmed with felt flowers and blue trim. In very good condition overall, there is a short tear along the seam of the waist, beneath the blue ribbon in front; and a blue stain that is located about two inches below the waist ribbon in back. In addition to her outer clothing, she wears a matching organdy full slip, a pair of pantaloons, felt shoes with newer button fasteners and rayon socks. Her darling curly blonde mohair wig is soiled in areas. It is sewn in strips, in circles, directly to her felt scalp. Under the wig, are felt ears that are folded and stitched. If you love cloth dolls, you will enjoy the winsome character of this mystery version.
