Vintage collection of very well presented medium size 'travel' dolls collected in Europe in the mid 1960's. They are all in near immaculate shape with nice detailed costumes in perfect order. They all have their original tags - two are from Italy, made by Majis and the third is Swedish tagged as Rattick JW.
The Swedish doll is 12 1/2" high, with glorious ash blond braids in perfect order topped with a sweet black felt hat trimmed in a fine sewn red band with a red tassel. Her face is soft plastic, with lashed sleep eyes and nice detail. She wears a little green patterned scarf around her shoulders which covers a red and green patterned vest and a white blouse trimmed with lace at the neck and the sleeves. A lot of very nice detail. Her blue cotton skirt has a panel of striped fabric down the center. She wears red knitted long socks and plastic shoes. Her body is hard plastic with legs which move from the hips.
The the dolls to the left and right of the larger doll are both 10 1/2" high, made by the Italian firm Magis. They are both tagged Roma and Tivoli. They both have lovely soft molded felt faces with beautiful painted lashes and varnished eyes which sparkle and look sideways. Both of their costumes are colorful, in pristine condition and very well made. They both have stiff tulle slips, undergarments and wear white socks and gold toned hoop earrings.
The doll to the left (Roma) has lace edged sleeves to her cotton blouse, a black felt 'vest', a vibrant green felt apron with pretty gold and floral braid which covers a full red cotton skirt trimmed with 2 wide bands of ribbon. Her head scarf is red felt, she wears earrings and is carrying a flat straw basket full of violets. She has neat mohair braids to the sides of her neck. Her body is cloth other than the arms, which move from the shoulder, are hard plastic. Great detail and very good condition other than a few little specks to her face.
The doll on the right (Tivoli) wears a print shawl trimmed with lace and a cotton blouse trimmed with gold braid. A very pretty lace apron which covers a beautiful green and white 'velour' patterned skirt - very elegant. Red shoes. Her silky yellow head scarf has hand painted detail and a red felt 'fringe'. Her black hair is mohair and braided to the sides if her neck.
This is a lovely group of beautifully made and costumed dolls to add to or as a start to a collection.
