Maybe Mani can help with Maurie?
I was down at the shop this morning and overheard the ladies talking about some 'collector's dolls' that had just come out of the back-room. Nothing else had interested me in the slightest and I had to have a look. There he was in a box with five young ladies who had seen better days.
Maurie was the stand out to my eye. He looked like one of those Hummel figures. Blue eyed and curly cued! The clothes were kind of Germanic too: tailored even. Knitted socks. Bows on the shoes. Detailed.
I even had to justify my interest to the sales staff! They were expecting someone else other than me to be interested.
This was my period.
My mother even dressed me like this!
I took him home and showed him around the Adagio and Skrdlovice.
He has marks at the neck that have refused so far to be photographed: 12 BH - 2.
Stands well! Good posture! Maurie is 30 cm or 11.8" tall.
Open/closed eyes: he sleeps!
