This is "Vivi",arare all-bisque character created by Jeanne Orsini circa 1919. Jeanne designed her dolls in New York city and they were produced overseas in Germany.
This is the more desirable glass eyed version. She is approx. 5" tall when measured with her pate/wig on. She is incised JIO 1919 47.
Vivihas anopen-closed mouth with a huge smile on her face. She has 4 upper teeth and a molded tongue. Upturned nose with red dots. Her glass eyes areblue and are factory set.
Vivi has the modeled hands that Orsini was known for. One has the raised forefinger/closed fistand the other is cupped with bent thumb.
She is all original and displays wonderfully! Her front label is missing.

A veryrare all bisque character that is seldom seen. I am only selling her because I bought another Vivi at a local sale thinking that I had Mimi at home :).
