Meet the lovely Vera, a 16.5” Lenci teenager or young lady from 1926-27, Model 400C. Purchased at a doll show in 1988.

She has long, slender legs & arms and is jointed at hips, shoulders & neck. The thumb & two fingers on each hand are separated, with the two middle fingers stitched together. The head is beautifully molded, with attached ears.Her side-glancing painted brown eyes cast a wistful glance under well-defined brown eyebrows & long painted upper lashes. She has a red dot in each nostril, and her full lips are accented with a lighter color on the lower lip. Her blond mohair wig has a center part & long braids.

Her short dress is black felt appliquéd with bright pink flowers & colorful leaves. The ruffled collar, cuffs & bib front are white organdy, as are her slip & bloomer pants. Her wide-brimmed hat is blue felt with under brim of bright pink. White cotton stockings & black leather slippers complete her costume. Dress is tagged “Lenci-Made in Italy”.

Doll was identified from a picture & paragraph that appeared in Doll Reader (Dec ‘92/Jan ’93); that page will be included with your purchase.


On Jul-09-13 at 10:48:57 PDT, seller added the following information:

The doll has a water stain on her right temple/under-eye. It is hidden under the brim of her hat and, unfortunately, is only barely visible in the included close-up photo. I cannot add photos without canceling this listing, and it is certainly not my intent to mislead, so please contact me to see this add'l photo view.
