Marvelous Rare Totaly Factory Original 20" Lenci 109 W/ Marvelous Outfit/cap Lr For SaleHere is another marvelous, large, rare, I'm told because of her dress, 1920's, factory original Lenci 109 Character Girl. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have a lot of knowlage when it comes to LenciÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s so I rely on otherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s that know way more then me. I just received several factory original LenciÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s from the original owner so none have been on the open market before. She has a beautiful face, big brown side glancing eyes with lashes, fabulous curly mohair wig, that is sewn into her and, outstanding felt and organdy dress, matching hat, original slip and teddy, along with her original socks and shoes. She is absolutly adorable and thou I am so not an expert she appears to be a Lenci 109 from the later 1920's and the 109 series is quite hard to come by. She is 20" tall and was made by the Lenci Doll Factory in Italy in the 1920's. She is somewhat soiled with shelf dust from being packed away for decades but I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s that bad, and there are no holes or rips anywhere on her body or cloths. I was told long ago that you can clean a Lenci but I have no idea how that would be done. Her face is fabulous and her coloring his marvelous. She has huge brown side glancing eyes with white dots and light painted lashes. Her brows are light but her lips are excellent and her up-turned pug nose and cheeks have a rosy color from being out in the snow to long. She has a marvelous pensive expression as if she is thinking what to do next. Her original mohair wig is marvelous and stiched to her head. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wonderfully thick and full and covered with short messy curls so it frames her face perfectly. She is jointed at the neck, shoulders and hips and has the typical zig zag stitching on the back of her head and the folded back Lenci ears. Her body is super with no holes, rips or repairs and quite clean under her dress, teddy and shoes and socks. She is wearing her factory original felt and organdy dress and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in fabulous condition. It has short red felt sleeves and neck line then the organdy is is gathered on top so it flairÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s out beautifully to the hem. There are 2 rows of felt appliqued bells and circles with the red felt in-between. Her dress has an attached slip at the waist and that helps makes the dress even fuller and her original teddy and socks are perfect. Her original red felt hat is wonderful with peeks around the bottom to form a 6 side point on top with a long tassel with red felt ball at the end. Considering this Lenci is almost 100 years old so she really is in remarkable condition and she will make a fabulous addition to any Lenci collection and a marvelous surprise for that someone special on Christmas morning. This outstanding, rare, factory original 1920's 20" Lenci 109 Character Girl I was told should sell up wards of $2000.00 but my reserve is less so don't let her get away away. Lucky winner pays $30.00 S/I and international would be more. Email any questions and thanks for looking.
