I purchase this girl recently at a shop who couldn't give me any history about her at all as she'd been gifted to them. I've never seen anything like her before in my life & would love to hear from anyone who can give me any information about her at all.
She is vibrantly coloured in what I think is velvet and I think she is stuffed with sawdust. Her legs move and I have taken a picture of the stud which is attaches them to her. She has a wooden? mask which hangs around her neck & fits her face perfectly & is lined with green velvet and she has protruding body parts to say the least! The only dis-coloured parts are the lace cuffs around her arms which have obviously dulled with time. Her finger nails & toe nails are painted and she has several items of jewellery on one of which is a charm bracelet which holds a 5 cent piece 1938, a quarter 1924 and one cent 1903 all in miniature. Her hair seems to be made of some type of animal fur (just a guess but it dosen't feel manufactured) and she sits about 19 inches high. I would be very grateful for any information. Many thanks.
