Here is yet another marvelous early example of a Chinese Door of Hope Mission Doll – the "Old Lady."
Standing twelve inches tall overall, she remains in good condition and features a finely carved wood head with carved wrinkles that suggest age, carved and painted black eyes, nicely detailed ears, and a carved bun in back of her streaky painted hairstyle that includes a gold painted hair ornament.
Dressed in a russet silk tunic (fading), along with black silk brocade pant, she also wears silk shoes (poor condition) upon her bound feet.

Thank you,







Lenci - Lucia Face

A lovely and interesting version of the Lucia face who stands seventeen inches tall overall, due to her towering hat, classic features include felt construction, and beautifully designed, bright clean clothes that have two tags affixed to them. One tag is a cloth label sewn in the underside of the skirt which reads "Lenci, Torino" while another tag is affixed in front. A third tag is attached to the doll's right hand and reads: "Bolzano Tirolo."
Further details include a gorgeous wig, brilliant, moth issue free clothing that includes a silk (tenderness and shattering) apron scattered with a border of colorful flowers, and note the hat was decorated with colorful flowers and feathers, as well.
A lovely Lenci at a very fair price.








Hailing from Shanghai, China, we are pleased to offer a marvelous carved wood gentleman from the Door of Hope Mission. Costumed in cotton to represent a House Servant, this pleasant fellow remains in good condition overall, exhibiting some light fading to his costume, the loss of his cap, but his long queue remains.
A classic character, he is an essential part of the Door of Hope family of dolls.

Measures: 11 1/2"

Thank you,







Lucia Face

An all-original Italian felt Lenci Boy featuring the Lucia face with nicely detailed blue eyes and blushed cheeks. He wears a wonderfully detailed felt costume (that we believe denotes him as a guard of some sort) that includes an embroidered coat and detailed vest, plus a marvelous hat which is crowned with very colorful blossoms. He remains in very good condition overall.

Doll measures: 16" overall.








Lenci Mascotte

Surprise-eyed Lenci Mascotte in her original, very detailed, Italian regional costume.

Measures: 9" overall.

Thank you, A.







Lenci - Lucia Face

We are pleased to offer this lovely Lucia-face Lenci, featuring nicely painted features including deep brown eyes and beautifully blushed cheeks. Her classic body type consists of a cloth torso, with joints at the shoulders and hips, and felt limbs, and she wears a wonderfully detailed and brilliant felt costume, which is not only in very good condition, but is also complete with the original paper and cloth tags.
The woven straw basket originally contained a felt creation of some sort, but it could be filled with twigs, or flowers. Note the intricate crewel-work rooster motif upon her skirt - charming.

Measures: 14 1/2" overall.









22-1/2" tall one-of-a-kind black cloth child, "Ella" is a singular creation who expresses wisdom and joy. Details include construction from black sateen, with a noble profile achieved by a center seam down her face, while further stitching achieves the look of smile lines.
In addition, Ella has a stitched floss mouth, nostrils, eyes and eyeliner, while a hint of ear was achieved by side seams in the head. Her large hands featured defined fingers and a thumb achieved by top-stitching, while her feet remain simple, but they do wear really fun olive green oilcloth shoes.
Ella's cranberry red wool dress is accented with off-white soutache, while a classic straw hat seems the perfect choice up top.
A nice piece of folk art, and as American as apple pie.

Measures: 13 3/8" overall.









Miss One of a Kind 1920


Isn't doll-life unfair? Some dolls were handed out very little beauty, and others, like the ravishing one shown here are the lucky ones! Features of this one of a kind cloth creation include a softly stuffed body with hinged arms and legs, stitched facial features including detailed eyes, a needle-sculpted nose, and stitched full lips and even upper teeth visible! A wooly wig is kept in place by a stylish crocheted hair net complete with chic tassel, and matching booties coordinate perfectly. The pale blue cotton dress features contrasting white trim at the sleeves and neck, while a sash pulls it all together – so to speak.
“It's beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.”

Measures: 17-1/2" tall







From the Fairy Tale Series “To Market, to Market to Buy a Fat Hen" with jointed legs, wearing a red cotton dress with apron and wearing an unusual hat. Very good condition.


Since we all know time flies, you will have your doll at home in your arms in no time at all!
