RARE ENGLISH BOUDOIR PAJAMA BAG DOLL 20s FARNELL or NORA WELLINGS
From my personal collection a lovely boudoir doll with wigged molded felt head and cloth velvet body, in the shape of a night dress case or pajama bag. The head has a lovely expression with hand painted brown flirty eyes, and a smiling red mouth showing teeth, pierced ears with large round metal earrings, black mohair wig, the body is made of stuffed velvet yellow and black adorned with a zig zag satin insert, she also wears a velvet removable hat and an original necklace in red pearls (some are inside the pajama bag and need to be reset). She has small funny feet.
MARK: I think the doll has been manufactured by Farnell's Alpha Toys or Nora Wellings, the pattern is rare and difficult to find.
SIZE: the lady is approx 56 cm ( 22 inches) high.
ORIGIN: this boudoir doll is made in England, around 1920.
CONDITION: used, need a little cleaning, some minor wear due to age. SOLD
