From our "family" of regional dolls. Here is a seldom found 11 inch tall, German manufactured, painted bisque sockethead doll (head probably by KR) dressed in her complete, multi-layered Russian original clothing from the Ukrainian province or district that she represents for the long cold winter. She is marked on the back of her neck (hard to read the lettering). She has gorgeous, blue glass sleep eyes with wax eyelids, finely painted upper and lower eyelashes and multi-stroke painted eyebrows as well as an open mouth with row of tiny teeth. She has a nicely shaped torso with joints at her shoulders, hips, elbows and a swivel head.
S he wears her original dark charcoal wool coat with embroidery and lambs wool trim (fitted at the waist) along two long cotton, c o l o r fully printed, petticoats beneath her pretty floral printed dress with pink cotton trim and h er original cream cotton stockings and woven grass, straw-type shoes (lapti) (one shoe is missing the sole & part of the side). Golden FLAX wig is center-parted and combed back into a long braid and wrapped around her head which is covered with a lovely babushka or head scarf. This delightful ethnic doll is getting very difficult to find and she is a wonderful example of high quality manufacture. She holds a pose well and is in excellent condition with no damages or repairs, no cracks or hairlines, no repaint, no chips or holes, no dust or fading and no odors as she is from a smoke free home.She has all her fingers and toes with original paint finish.
