A wonderful European cloth doll sent from Denmark as a gift to a special little girl, circa 1940s. He stands 8-1/2 inches tall and is made of velveteen and felt with a molded painted felt face, stitched ears, stitched fingers on mitt-shaped hands and painted metal feet. He is all original and in very good condition. I believe that he is dressed as a messenger or postman, as he carries a little oilcloth mailbag slung across his chest. His uniform colors are bright and unfaded, trimmed with stitched tape and metal buttons. He carries a little Christmas gift tag, which translates to read, “To Norma, From Aunt and Uncle Petir in Denmark”.
Doll is unmarked. He is in good, clean condition with a tiny bit of wear to his jacket between the two bottom buttons, a crease in the oilcloth visor of his cap, and paint wear on the toe and sole of his right foot.
This little guys happy smile will deliver sunshine to your collection.
