She was in a box of cloth faced and felt faced travel, or souvenier dolls. I love travel dolls, and had bid on several boxes of them. For some reason,at this particular auction, other people decided they loved them too, which isn't always the case. So I didn't get the others I bid on because I just didn't want to spend that much money when there were other things coming up that I really wanted. But this box I was willing to go a little higher on because I had to have this cloth doll. Luckily,and amazingly, nobody bid against me and I got the box for $5! It may have been because a couple of the travel dolls weren't in the best condition. Whatever the reason, I'm so glad I got this lady. She's so pretty.
|Lots of detail, including the tiny 'buttons' on her blouse,her little bead necklace, her individual fingers, and her embroidered hanky.|
|Such realistic expression on a cloth face.|
I love all the embroidery on her clothes.
|She's jointed at the hips, so she can sit down. She has obviously been displayed that way, because her skirt tends to stand straight up behind her head!|
She also has on the coziest looking stockings.
Here is her tag. I can't read what it says. If anybody knows who made her or can at least read it, I'd love to hear from you.
