29" Early LENCI 1930 Rare MINHO Portugal Lady W.Guitar Boudoir Doll Original

A rare and gorgeously colorful felt Lenci Portugal Boudoir Lady is circa 1930, all-original and in very good to excellent condition; she is 29" tall when standing and 14" high when sitting – plus another 3" to the top of her large hand-painted wooden hair-combs, her legs daintily dangle another 10" below when sitting, and her skirt-hem circumference is 60 inches!

Her smiling face has mischievous side-glancing brown eyes, pink cheeks, open-closed mouth with highlight dots on lighter lower lip, plus individually painted teeth~ (two very tiny holes, one each side on neck that don't show); black mohair wig has a `widow's peak' and intricately-wound triple bun at the nape, ears are double-layer & pierced, retaining one large brass spiral earring.

Our lady has stitch-jointed knees, disc-jointed shoulders, hips & neck, which is molded with a slant & tilt to the right, so she's quite pose-able. Original Guitar and hair-combs are hand-carved solid wood and hand-painted, with left fingers wired & stitched to hold the neck of the guitar~ (correct hands separately factory-attached at wrist, the right wrist is somewhat weak but sturdy).

The amazing costume is of MINHO, Portugal, known for the beautiful wool crewel embroidery, vest with fully embroidered back, and tear-drop shaped pocket tied at her waist which is typical of Portugal. A cotton blouse, two scallop-hemmed petticoats with matching pantalets, and knee-high felt boots with leather-covered wooden heels – boots match her half-sleeves, which reach from wrists to just above the elbow; she's just fabulous and comes from a non-smoking environment.
