Leather doll arms, beautifully hand stitched in a very hard to find larger size.
The leather is buttery soft and silky feeling, the stitching tiny and even. Separately stitched fingers are in very fine condition as are the arms themselves. As shown in the detailed photos, there are some light marks, but that is all there is to report. They are stuffed with natural cotton and it appears that the upper muslin arms were cut off whatever body they were originally on. It would be a simple thing to add some length to the upper muslin if needed.
Measurements: The leather portion only, to above the elbow measures 7-1/2 inches from the longest middle finger to the top of the leather. The upper muslin adds about 2 inches which makes the entire arm about 9-1/2" long.
These should work for dolls between 26 inches and 32 inches tall and would be perfect for a large china head doll, wax, folk cloth (rag) or parian.
These are really elegant arms and would work for the rarest of dolls without apologies.
