Lenci-type Balilla Boy by FioreLenci-type Balilla Boy by FioreLenci-type Balilla Boy by FioreLenci-type Balilla Boy by FioreLenci-type Balilla Boy by Fiore

7.5in. "Mascotte" type male felt doll. Although unmarked he has the characteristics of the Lenci competitor, Italian company Fiore.
I recently discovered that this is Fiore's version of the Lenci Balilla boy - dressed in the uniform of the Italian National Fascist Party from 1927-35. I also found that it may mean in Italian "mean little boy". Seems appropriate to the organization.
Condition: age discoloration on face and moth damage on back of the jacket.
