AUSTRALIAN SCALLYWAG CERAMIC DOLL WITH PAINTED FEATURES – CIRCA 1980’s
This is an Australian artist made Scallywags doll. She is not perfect so priced cheaply and just her clothing and wig would be worth my asking price.
She was made in the 1980’s and measures in height approximately 17.5″ (44cm).
She has a ceramic head, half arms and legs and her body is cloth.
She has handpainted facial features but when cleaned her eyebrows washed off so had obviously not been sealed and her lips could do with touching up also. She has a blonde ringleted wig. On one of her hands there is glue but could not see that they had been previously broken but wasn’t game to take off just in case her fingers did fall off! Her cloth body is in good but aged condition.
She comes wearing a cute frock trimmed with cotton lace that has been laundered only and does have a little pair of glasses but the plastic in them has aged giving them a yellow tinge.
