Description of Doll for Sale

For your enjoyment a wonderful example of a vintage felt Lenci doll from the 1930's.  This Lenci doll was made in Italy and is 17 inches tall.  Lenci started making dolls in felt after the first world war because of a lack of other doll making materials. The continued the tradition of making the finest felt dolls up to the 1980's.  The early dolls from the 20's and 30's are hard to find in good condition.  The wool felt is easily soiled, fades easily, and is subject to moth damage.
