GERMAN MADE VINTAGE DOLL IN ORIGINAL BOX & COSTUME – LAPLAND?
This is a miniature German made doll in his original box and still has the thread around his neck from where he was attached in the box (he is now loose). He is stamped Germany on the base of 1 foot and I believe is dressed in a Lapland costume so perhaps made for the Tourist market. I believe this doll would date to somewhere between the 1920’s – 1930’s era.
The doll itself measures approximately 10cm in height and appears to be made from a plaster type material and then painted. The arms and legs are jointed.
The original cardboard box is for its age in very good condition and features a “leather look” pattern. There is a previous owners name pencilled around the side of the box. The inner edge has paper lace around it.
A beautiful example of an early National Doll completely original and in very good condition. There is some age staining to his felt pants only.
