The folklore costumed dolls from the early 1910 era are fun to collect: the details of design, textures and delightful quality are still impressive. This 6.5" doll has a composition body, jointed at the shoulders, hip and neck, with brown set eyes, single stroke brows and full lashes, open mouth with teeth, and her original wig. The painting is fine and accurate, with a slight blemish of lip paint under the wig on the forehead. The back of her head is marked GK in the sunburst circle, 44-13 underneath. She has no chips, cracks or repairs to either the bisque or the composition.
Complete with her original green felt hat to match her painted green leggings, her costume may represent Northern Europe. Her black vest laces up the front, the gauze shirt has puffy sleeves that show brittle breakage in the back. The spring green apron protects the salmon felted skirt with light green rickrack. A delightful shawl with tiny red print on white is gracefully draped over her shoulders and tucked into the vest. Clean and bright, she is a delightful example of the souvenir dolls from the grand tour era.
