We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a CHARMING ALL ORIGINAL FRENCH BRITTANY CELLULOID DOLL!
Made in FRANCE circa 1930'S, but this beautiful little doll wears her ELABORATE original ethnic Brittany outfit, and whether you are an avid collector of celluloid dolls or FRENCH FASHION you will love this LOVELY LADY!
The doll herself measures approximately 11" tall, but with her long gown and tall hat she stands a commanding total of 14" tall! She wears her original French costume consisting of a thick black wool dress embellished with colorful CHENILLE PIPING, wonderful rich METALLIC TRIM, and gorgeous FRENCH LACE, complimented by a luxurious PINK SILK apron and stiffened lace HAT & COLLAR in typical French Brittany style, and underneath she wears her original pink silk and lace trimmed panties! With the exception of a slight stain on her apron where it looks like there was a piece of tape, she is in EXCEPTIONALLY MINT and FACTORY ORIGINAL condition!
She has her original light BLONDE MOHAIR wig, and her celluloid is BEAUTIFULLY FORMED with detailed features including a painted red ROSEBUD MOUTH with a cheerful upturned smile, sweet little blushed ROUNDED CHEEKS, painted BLUE EYES, and the most ENDEARING of expressions!
She has her original STRUNG BODY which is made of a more desirable lighter celluloid, enabling it to be more FINELY MOLDED! Her feet have painted on BLACK SHOES with white RIBBED SOCKS, and her hands have INDIVIDUALLY FORMED fingers; her stringing at the top of the legs has loosened over the years, but her arms are still relatively tight at the sockets! For fear of compromising the original integrity of her dress we are unable to remove her clothes to see if she bears the original manufacturer's mark, but she does have her original gold HANG TAG! It reads "Je suis la petite FLEUR D'A JONC de PONT-AVEN, qui vous apporte le sourire, de la BRETAGNE", which translates into "I am the little BLOSSOM GORSE of PONT AVEN, which brings you smile, of BRITTANY", and a sweet LITTLE FLOWER she is------you will love her COMPLETE ORIGINALITY and her overall presentation is simply CHARMING!
This FABULOUS CIRCA 1930's ALL ORIGINAL FRENCH BRITTANY CELLULOID DOLL with ELABORATE COSTUME is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-----a DELIGHTFUL DOLL!
