Standing twelve inches tall overall, he remains in very good condition and features a finely carved wood head and hands (complete with nine carved "indents" upon his head under his cap), carved and painted black eyes, and nicely detailed ears.
Dressed in a tan hemp/linen outer coat, along with with a black cap, he also wears a blue cotton tunic and pants underneath.

Thank you,







Lenci - Lucia Face

Ahhhh...be still, heart. What is it about the magical dolls from the Lenci Company? This darling Lucia-face Girl features side glancing brown eyes, lovely features and a marvelous blonde mohair wig styled in braids. The overall condition of this creation is very good. She is of the era when a felt-like fabric was used in the making of the arms and legs, as opposed to wool felt, so she is virtually moth damage free.
Her printed cotton dress, which is decorated with wool flowers, is lovely and bright, and is worn over a stiffened organdy blouse. The doll retains her original underwear, stockings and shoes.
Great art in felt – that's what they are – those heart-wrenching Lenci dolls.

Measures: 14 1/4" overall.

Thank you,

A paper label upon the sole of his moccasin denotes him as the genuine article.

Lenci Fashion Plate

Measuring sixteen inches tall overall, including her hat, this Lenci girl could not be more adorable. This version, which we believe is a model #80 with the #111 face, has the leggier body type, brown eyes with shadow, and features wefted mohair sewn directly to the head.
The very stylish ensemble consists of a short dress in organdy that is simply edged in aqua felt (showing tender areas) over which is worn a chic coat (distress to buttonhole stitching) with a scarf built in as part of the collar, plus a matching cap.
For an early Lenci example the condition is good, with just a bit of soil, and just a few moth issues visible on the back of the coat, and upon the cap.
A hard to find model in exceptional condition.

Doll alone measures: 14 1/2" tall.

Thank you, K.
