European Souvenir Doll - Gorgeous mohair wig, lovely face -
This unusual doll has a distinctively Scandinavian look to her,
with almost-white golden mohair wig styled in a long braid down her
back. She wears a white blouse and red peasant skirt decorated with
braid and ribbons. I wonder if she might have had an apron at some
time? An apron with decorative braid would look good on her.
Her shoes/socks are replaced. The doll is made of vinyl/plastic
type material. She seems to be strung together at all the joints,
and the elastic is still good and snug. I don't know her age,
and she is unmarked. She is 13.5 inches tall.
This doll is very well made, with quality materials. She has a
lovely face in the European style, with slightly slanted eyes and
full lips. The face paint is very nice: I especially like the
unusual way that the eyebrows are painted.
From the materials used, I suspect she is a 1960's doll, made
in Europe. Possibly a Furga, Famosa or Italocremona doll. She might
have been a souvenir doll; from Scandinavia, Austria, France,
Switzerland or other country with a similar ethnic costume.
