Wonderful Rare Antique Cloth Venus Doll Lenci Type Needs Help Tlc Or Parts For Sale
For your consideration is this wonderful antique rare Venus doll. She is about 16 inches tall.She has damage to her nose that was crudely repaired with glue and some matching paint. She longs to be restored and I bought her recently, not for personal gain, but simply to ensure that she might get to someone knowledgeable and talented who will be able to restore her. Her face is hand painted and her hair is mohair and very full all around the head. Her wool felt clothes are all original and there is some wear to the back of the hat and the dress has an area with a small ¼ inch sized hole with some little light colored spots. This can be hidden in the fold of the dress very nicely and it's not easily seen. There are a few tiny spots from moths but not bad considering the age of the wool. The body is hard stuffed and she’s jointed at the neck although it doesn’t turn and jointed at the shoulders and hips. The shoes and socks are original and her right shoe is missing the strap and the sock is unraveling as they are very old and antique. She wears the original cotton lace trimmed panties. She is a very hard to find, cloth doll that competed with the Lenci dolls and is a highly valued, desirable doll today. She has no bad smells or odors. She needs the care of someone who will repair her damage and restore her sweet, adorable face and continue to preserve her place in the history of this era of beautiful cloth dolls.
