Unusual Vintage Doll

I’ve just put another doll in the main shop. I’ve put it in the ‘Broken’ section, as it needs re-strung. I think it’s an early composition doll but can’t find any markings on it. It has lots of chips and I know some people restore these dolls so they look the way they did when they were made but I prefer them ‘as is’ and like to see the age on them.

I think this doll has a pretty unusual face — but I don’t find it creepy (unlike some Victorian dolls). Looks like a boy doll to meĀ  — despite evidence to the contrary.

Lenci Doll

I sometimes sell antique and vintage dolls in the store, though not Lenci dolls — but only because I’ve not come across one yet. Lenci dolls are still being produced and the prices are reasonable enough — but it’s the antiques ones I’d be interested in (even though this one looks like the personification of evil).

Scary-looking Lenci doll.

Talk about giving someone a bad look — she sure looks like she’s resenting something
