This vintage half doll has a beautiful, colorful, and flamboyant hat. She appears to be holding glasses in her right hand, perhaps they are intended to be opera glasses? Or maybe, since the glasses aren't very fancy, she is at a horse race? She is beautifully dressed with a tight fitting top that has a double collar enhanced by a small cluster of fruit. Her over sized hat has a wide brim, green bow and large feathers on top. I thought for sure this doll was made in Germany but she actually has a stamped "Japan" mark on the inside.
Truly a lovely piece that will be a real eye catcher in your collection.
Condition is very good - she has a couple of areas with excess clay, a dot of discoloration on her left thumb and a tiny nick to the rim of her hat. Measures 5 1/2" tall.
