French cloth doll, unusual and rarely seen, with arms and legs that are cotton tubes with stiff wire inserts. 10.25 inches to the top of her hat ( attached). Her head is also cotton covered, with a lovely painted face, side glancing intelligent blue eyes. Her hair is yarn, hat is an unusual paperish woven material. I cannot see her body due to the clothing being sewn on. The clothing is rayon/acetate, I believe, and she wears a cotton slip and knickers. Black shoes, somewhat worn through where the wire loops around.
Attached to her slip is a paper label that reads “Mascotte”. I know what you’re all thinking....but the label has an insignia that looks like a triple A, also says Depose Patent, made in Paris. I have done my due diligence, and this lady was made by Mme. T Lazarski , circa 1925, per the Colemans. In excellent condition. She will be welcome in any collection, but especially in one that includes cloth dolls of all sorts.
