Here comes a beautiful old German girl doll in her original dress and underwear, made by Milon Gehler in Steinach, Thuringia in the early 1950s or even 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 Schildkröt 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 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 red shoes are moulded. Dolls features are hand painted. The felt dress is original and the cotton drawers she wears are original as well and sewn on, so they could not be removed for the photos.
As you can see in the photographs our old girl doll is in very good vintage condition! The elastics of her legs are not as firm as they were decades ago, but she can still stand perfectly alone!

*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, smaller Milon Gehler girl you see in the last photo is also listed in our store (unless sold by the time you read this).

*Please notice: This German vintage celluloid doll does not belong into the hands of children; it may not fulfill the safety standards for toys nowadays! So, this is not a toy, though an adult collector’s item for decoration & display only!
