From our "family" of regional dolls. Here is a seldom found 11 1/2 inch tall, antique 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 is from Dunaev, and the destroyed Zhuravlev & Kockeshkov doll factory using a German K&R doll head mold. Marked on the back of his neck, hard to read all 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 (crisp & clean) multi-layered costume including two long cotton, c o l o r fully floral printed, petticoats beneath her pretty floral printed dress with green cotton trim and h er original brown cotton stockings and woven grass, straw-type shoes (lapti). Her golden FLAX wig is center-parted and combed back into a long braid at the back of her head which is covered with a lovely, paisley wool babushka or head scarf.
This delightful ethnic doll holds her own 4 tall, miniature Russian girl doll with layered costume and matching shoes and is getting very difficult to find and she is a wonderful example of high quality manufacture. She holds a pose well and is in exce llent 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. (Her cotton printed dress with long sleeves matches the printed shirt of the boy doll, listed separately). She has all her fingers and toes with original paint finish.
