Vintage Lenci Type Doll Of The 50’s:
This doll is in poor condition. Face and body are press felt made. The face is oil painted, strong expression with extremely gentle colors. It has pouty lips and side-ways glancing eyes, a Lenci feature. The doll has blond mohair hair; The dress and the undergarment are in good condition, original and made of cotton. It looks like a LENCI but can’t really tell since there is no button on the foot nor a label sewn on the dress. Nevertheless there is another Lenci feature and it has to do with the fingers. The pinky, index and thumb are separate while the two middle fingers are sewn together. This is the way a post ’30’s Lenci’s hands were identified. Joints are movable, whole body and legs are original except the arms that have been repaired. It was bought in Italy from an antique shop. It measures 43 cm’s
