Pair 14" "Dedo" Googly Dolls Made in Italy All Original Ex. Condition (clean out sale)
Here I have a pair of wonderful "Dedo" Googly dolls, that were Made in Italy. They are 14 inches tall, made of light composition and jointed at the neck, shoulders, and upper legs. Their features are painted and vibrant in color. Their huge round dramatic eyes are beautiful. At first glance you would think they are glass, but to the touch, they are some kind of heavy plastic. They are stationary. Their Original glued on wigs feel human to the touch. They are dressed in their Original Outfits, and both are in excellent clean condition with no rips, tears, holes, stains or odors. The only flaws is the girl has a small crack on one cheek which you can see in one of the close up photos. It really is just dented in and small, and not distracting from the dolls unusual face. Also, on one of the girl's foot is a small crack under the white sandal. It's not going anywhere and probably been there a very long time. I believe these dolls to be earlier ones and date to around 1930s, due to the fact that the later dolls from the 1950s are made of light hard plastic, have large google eyes that go side to side, and painted shoes. The later dolls sometimes have the mark “Made in Italy, BREV” on back of neck. This pair of Dedo dolls are just adorable and if you like to collect dolls that you don't see every day, or at every doll show or auction, then these wonderful dolls are something to consider. Could be future ribbon winners in the "pair category" at any doll competition.
