Here comes a beautiful old German girl doll, made by Milon Gehler in Thuringia in the 1950's or earlier. Our vintage doll here is unmarked, but to our best knowledge only Milon Gehler produced those chubby girl dolls with the unmistakable hairstyle; yet very little is known about the manufacturer except that unmarked as well as marked dolls of this style are sometimes - and rarely as to this! – are still to be found. For sure they are much rarer than old Schildkrot dolls!

Our nice old doll is made of celluloid.
She stands 22 cm / 8 6/8 inches tall; her limbs are jointed; the head is not.
Vintage girl dolls hair is molded in the very sweet 1950's style that is called ‘Haartolle’ in German, I believe it is called quiff in English.
Also, old dolls socks and shoes are molded. Dolls features are hand painted. Her dress was obviously made for her but may not be the original one. The drawers she wears are original and sewn on as not to be removed.
As you can see in the photographs there are some smears and spots on the surface of the celluloid, but all in all our old girl doll is in very good vintage condition.

*Please, be aware that this listing is for the vintage celluloid doll ONLY, all other decorations you see in the photographs will NOT come with the doll!
