Klumpe Cloth Doll of Nursemaid with Baby

This 11 inch tall Klumpe cloth doll, circa the 1950s-60s, just made me laugh. The nursemaid holds a baby in christening outfit that even comes with the baby's own felt pacifier attached by a metal chain. The nursemaid has a rather surprised look. I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that the baby looks quite a bit like her. It makes you wonder about what kind of relationship existed between the man of the house and the nursemaid. The doll is made of felt over a wire armature with a painted mask face. She has a mohair wig in original set. The doll and baby both are in excellent original clean condition. These little humorous caricature dolls, made in Barcelona, Spain, originally would have had a paper tag sewn to the clothing. This doll has lost her tag but is undoubtedly a Klumpe. I just couldn't resist the charming pair!
