For your enjoyment a wonderful example of a vintage felt Lenci doll from the 1930's. This Lenci doll was made in Italy and is 17 inches tall.

The early dolls from the 20's and 30's are hard to find in good condition. The wool felt is easily soiled, fades easily, and is subject to moth damage.

This doll is from the 1930's and has good color with no moth damage. There are a few minor spots. Under the felt she is wearing an organdy slip and onesie. She is in amazing condition with no wear or soiling on the body and clothes which is hard to find on a felt doll which is 80+ years old.

Marks
