Vintage 1930s Cloth Lenci Type "Mariposa" Doll.
A charming little girl named "Mariposa" is 13" tall and made of felt. She is all-original with hand-painted facial features and black original wig. Her tag reads "HOLZER & Cia - S.Paulo, Industria Brasileira" and she has a foreign import stamp. See Pic.

She has disc-joints at neck, arms & legs. She is wearing her colorful pink felt costume with matching sandals of felt and wood, a linen chemise underneath, and a pretty basket of felt fruit adorns her head-piece.
