Antique 14 inch Lenci Cerce Maggiore Italian Doll National Costume Cloth c.1930's with Two Tags
Lovely Lenci doll, dating to 1936 to 1941, the years that the yellow bordered heart shaped tag along with the black ribbon Ars Lenci tags were used. She has the heart shaped tag on the front of her skirt that says, Cerce Maggiore and the Ars Lenci black and white tag on the back. Dressed in regional Italian costume with everything original, this doll is a lovely example.
She has painted brown side glancing eyes, closed mouth, soft cheek color, and painted upper eyelashes. Her face paint is original and intact with no touch ups or repaint and her face is free of staining.
Her felt ensemble in good overall condition, still very colorful and elaborate but is faded. This is a well preserved doll. Is clean and from a non smoking environment, circa late 1930's.
