    It is a fortune telling doll. You choose a leaf and the message on tells your fortune:
    'une personne t'aime d'amour" " someone loves you deeply".
    A rare and beautiful iem.

    Beautiful Tuck Comb peg wooden doll as a Fotune Teller . Wonderful thanks for sharing her . They also did these as peddlers dolls carring wares to sell haning from their clothes

    This is VERY COOL! I've seen tuck comb dolls before but never one dressed as a fortune teller.

    They did dress several as fortune tellers also as peddlers that carried all their wares on clothes lots of trickets in minature sizes . Beautiful doll and not common to find in such wonderful condition . Glad to see another doll person here Dollmaker :-)

    You're welcome, Manikin. You have a wonderful collection of dolls. I have seen the tuck combs or other peg woodens dressed as the peddlar dolls. This fortune teller, though, is a lot rarer, I bet. Especially having those papers in her skirt, you wouldn't expect a lot of them to survive the ravages of time.

    Yes it is amazing that the paper is in such wonderful condition . Wouldn't it be wonderful to find one like this Dollmaker :-) We better have a big check book too .
