Black Islander Doll by Norah Wellings, 8 Inches tall with original costume, foot tag, and hand-written tag by original owner stating:
' From Liberty's London, Eng. gift - B.J.K 1935 '
She is from the Novelties Series. She has her original grass skirt. Her tag is pre-1934 which coincides with her hand written tag.
Condition is excellent as shown, with brown velvet covering, original hair style, and painted features without wear.
Book value based on 12th Edition Doll Values page 292, is $150 in this size. It is difficult to find these dolls in such fine condition with no facial wear or dents and tag and costume in tact.
