Here comes a beautiful old German girl doll in her original dress, made by Milon Gehler in Thuringia in the 1950s 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 here 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 moulded in the very sweet 1950s style that is called ‘Haartolle’ in German, I believe it is called quiff in English.
Also, old dolls socks and shoes are moulded. Dolls features are hand painted, and she has rare brown eyes, most dolls eyes of that era are blue. Her dress is original as are the drawers she wears they are even sewn in a way as not to be removed.
As you can see in the photographs there is a smear and spot on the surface of the celluloid of dolls right arm, 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! The second Milon Gehler girl you see in the last photo is also listed in our store (unless sold by the time you read this).
