    I am not a doll expert & need some help identifying this old doll. I think she may be from the 1920's. She has 2-toned lips & her eyes are glancing off to the side. I think she is all cloth. Although the face material does look a little different then the rest of her body. Her top is felt. She measures about 16" in length. She is jointed at the waist but no where else. It looks like she once had a tag stapled to the bow on her neck but now all that remains is a tiny fragment of the tag & a staple. Everything on her is secured by pins. All 4 fingers are joined on her hands & the thumb is separate. Any help identifying this doll would be very much appreciated.

      Hi believe your doll is a Lenci doll or a Lenci look a like . Look inside seams of her dress for a label by Lenci and it may give her name also . Is her face cloth or felt , and how tall is she . Also look on bottom of her foot for Lenci name . Let me know what you find ok

      As I look at her quality I am inclined to think she is a Lenci Look a like doll . Which are still collectible and loved . Sometimes cloth dolls have to be seen in person to tell as there were many companies that copied Lenci's look .

      She is about 16" in length. I think her face may be felt. There are no marks on her feet & I cannot find anything on the seams of her clothes.

      I will look by dress but I am still thinking a Lenci Type doll . Cira 1920-40 .
