This is one of the most beautifully made cloth dolls I've ever seen. Her face is a wonder! Her costume is gorgeous! Carefully rendered from her rich paisley calico skirt to her hand embroidered apron! so many wonderful antique trims! And a great pleated petticoat! Her body is firm and finely crafted and in amazing condition!
She's definitely Eastern European, but I'm not sure exactly what region the costume represents. If I had to hazard a guess I'd say Hungarian. Or possibly Romania??
I think she's a very early doll, all of the materials are from around or before the turn of the century.
she's in great condition with a nice patina overall but sturdy! She's been very well kept!
I love this doll! And I'm asking a firm price for her! I think she's really something special.. I've been looking at Cloth dolls all day to get a clue as to who may have made this doll, and the one thing that stands out is, out of hundreds of little dolls, not a single one was as good as this little lady!
she's 13" tall.
