This is a hard to find Italian Gepp Creazioni Doll. She is 11.5" tall. The Gepp cloth label is stitched to the underside of her apron. The Gepp dolls date from the mid 20th century, circa 1950s. They are hard to find even in Italy.The head and hands are made from a glazed ceramic material. The body is cloth. These dolls are typically dressed in regional costumes. This lady is missing her original headdress and Gepp base.
Condition: She has some wear through the glaze on finger tips, nose tip, one eyebrow, and back of head. There is also a hairline in the glaze on her face. I can't tell for certain if this line goes through the ceramic material or not, but it appears to be superficial and within the glaze.
She does have imperfections, but still is a good study doll example of these hard to find dolls.
