This is truly a treasure that I believe was put together in the 1930s. That’s when a little girl decided that her little peg-wooden doll needed a display case and that a broken clock would be just the thing to solve her dilemma. The spindle doll is made of wood and measures 1-3/4” with and overall height of 2-1/2 “. I have no idea how old this doll is, but it appears quite old. There is the remnants of a label on the bottom of the base, but it is not readable. Other than “MADE IN”. She has painted hair and features and is jointed only at the arms.
She is dressed in a shiny pink fabric dress with soutache trim that is intact but frayed in places. I can’t tell what it is made of, but I don’t think that it silk.
She is nestled inside of an old alarm clock case with little cloth flowers and a bit of foil. There is a piece of yellowing plastic that completes the display case.
This item is in very good condition and is free of any breaks, odors, repairs, scratches etc.
