Lenci - Lucia Face

We are very particular about the condition of the Lenci examples that we offer - this exquisite Lucia-face obviously made the cut. Here is an exquisite version of the classic model with features that include felt construction, plus beautifully painted features and a full blonde wig.
One of two tags present is a cloth label sewn on the underside of the skirt which reads "Lenci, Torino" while another tag is affixed to the right hand and reads "SPOSA dei dentorni di LUCCA TOSCANA".
Further details include brilliant, moth issue free clothing that includes a delicate organdy apron scattered with colorful flowers and note the straw hat was decorated with colorful flowers as well.
A truly magnificent Lenci surely destined for the advanced collector.

Kathe Kruse Doll I

Kathe Kruse Doll I Boy with original paint in very good condition showing minor losses upon the beautifully painted brown hair at seams, and a few cheek rubs. Further details include nicely detailed brown eyes that are complete with delicate striations, all on a cloth body with wide hips.
Concerning his clothing, it is vintage, commercially constructed, and exquisitely styled and tailored, but we are not positive that it is Kruse. Regardless, the presentation of this very handsome example is outstanding.

What a lot of detail lavished on a petite example from the Lenci firm!
Details of this handsome Italian soldier, who dates from the early 1930s and stands ten inches tall overall, include a wonderful uniform of deep green felt (now faded to a lighter shade), leggings worn over his trousers, leather shoes and an amazing oilcloth hat with a cascade of iridescent feathers! He retains a painted wooden dagger worn in a scabbard found under his coat!
The condition is good due to the above mentioned fading and there is some spotting to his left cheek.
