Here comes a beautiful old German girl doll in her original dress, made by Milon Gehler in Thuringia in the early 1950s or even earlier. Our vintage doll here is marked on her neck with a diamond and “MiGe” in it. To our best knowledge only Milon Gehler produced those chubby girl dolls with the unmistakable hairstyle; yet 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 Schildkröt dolls!

Our nice old doll here is made of celluloid.
She stands 18 cm / 7 inches tall; her limbs are jointed; the head is not.
Vintage girl dolls hair is moulded in the sweetest 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 Milon Gehler dolls eyes are blue. Her felt dress with lace trimmings is original. Her drawers are later editions; hand crocheted, probably made by a child.
As you can see in the photographs there is a spot where the celluloid seam is a tiny bit open on the right lower body, 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 other Milon Gehler girls you see in the last photo is also listed in our store (unless sold by the time you read this).
