Rare Ronnaug Petterssen Angel All Original!
This is a Rare HTF "Flying Angel" that is 6" tall and was created by doll artist Ronnaug Petterssen in Norway post World War II. The series of Petterssen Angels is very desirable and hard to find. This "Flying Angel" has a green cord attached to the back of the wings so the angel could be hung as an ornament. See Pic.
The sweet angel is beautifully dressed in an angel costumes sewn from white wool felt with matching mittens and hood. The wings are silver foil with creases to give the effect of feathers. As usual of the Petterssen dolls, the dolls and the outfits are wonderfully constructed of excellent quality materials. The white felt is still very nice and clean for the age of the doll.
The angel doll is all cloth and measures 6" tall. Her pressed, painted felt face is painted in a sweetly expressive manner with closed eyes. The doll is in very good condition and in an all-original costume. The original tag is missing but it is definitely an all original Ronnaug Petterssen angel.
I have pictured 2 of the "Flying Angels" together. This listing is for one only and the other is listed separately. Also pictured are the angels in the new Ronnaug Petterssen Book pages 142-143.
Wonderful examples of the artistry of Ronnaug Petterssen!
