She has been in our family a very long time however I can not find any information on her other than what the bottom of her shoe's read: Made in Italy "Rosy" 18-20....She is all clothe and jointed arms and legs. Her head though is almost like a thick paper mache, not sure, it is hollow. She is beautiful..She is 6 1/2 inches tall and her make up looks great.. I want to know more about this doll if anyone can help. I believe she is a Lenci Doll however I am not sure. Help....

    Hi your doll is not a Lenci , She is a what we call Lenci Look a Like . Face is wrong and clothes are wrong for a lenci doll they used very high quality clothes usually of felt but sometimes organdy. I believe She was made by Italarts in Italy. Very nice doll and hope this helps I am sure you wanted her to be a Lenci But love her anyway :-)
    Here is one similar but smaller

    Lenci only did felt faces for one so that alone eliminates her , I am 99% sure the name I gave you is correct for her . But to many other things as I mentioned are wrong for Lenci also . She is beautiful doll however .

    Hi I have a collection of these type dolls. Mine also says Rosy 18-20 on the feet however mine are different and dressed in costumes from different countries. I have the boxes they are in. One indicated Carla with the brand name Firenze. From what I have found out they are look alikes for the Lenci. Hope this helps. I am researching also. These were given to me and my sister when we were in grade school===I am 64 now. My mother worked at a local toy store and these came in once a month and dressed in clothes representing different countries.
