Larger size Norah Wellings doll made in England with original foot tag and costume. This doll has it's original hair style, unusual RED hair, painted features, and sewn on orange velvet costume.
Foot tag is in tact and reads: ' Made in England // by // Norah Wellings '. This is a pre-1934 tag.
Condition is excellent with very light wear to the high points of the face as shown, and is less than typical for these dolls. The issue is always the nap of the velvet.
Book value based on 12th Edition Doll Values page 292, is $200 in this size. It is difficult to find these dolls in such fine condition with minimal facial wear or dents and tag and costume clean and in tact.
This is another offering from my personal collection of Norah Wellings Black Islander dolls that have been in my collection for about 30 years.
