This is a beautiful example of the colorful cloth dolls produced by the Lenci Doll Firm. Her head is tilted slightly down and she is looking up with wide, round eyes. Her tiny mouth is puckered and her button nose helps to give her the youthful expression of an innocent child. Her clothes are bright and colorful, just as they were when she left the Lenci Doll firm many years ago. Her little round face has detailed, expressive round eyes with thick upper lashes and high brows. Her cheeks are blushed and her tiny mouth is darker red on the top and a lighter shade red on the bottom lip. Her hair is parted in the middle and wound in braids above each ear. She wears good hoop earrings and a gold beaded necklace. Two gold pins hold her red felt headpiece that extends in the back to her shoulders. The headpiece is edged in yellow. Her blouse is white with black and yellow felt cuffs. She has a red felt apron with white bands decorated with colorful embroidery. Her green felt skirt has bands of yellow and red. She wears black felt shoes with white cotton socks. She wears a cotton slip and matching pantaloons trimmed in gold rick rack. She has two pin head sized holes in her felt skirt. Both are at the binding and do not show. There are several age holes in her slip (pictured). The felt is bright with no fading. She is 12" tall. She has a Lenci paper label attached to her skirt (pictured) and a heart shaped label tied with a red ribbon on her right arm (pictured). This label seems to read "Ciociora, Lazio". It is in script and is difficult to read.
