From my personal collection a lovely ethnic doll with original regional outfit. Papier mache felt head is well sculpted, hand painted features are well preserved, stuffed cloth body, intricate outfit is complete and elaborate, metal ornament and beads.
MARK: this doll was created by the artist Ronnaug Petterssen.
SIZE: the lady is approx 33 cm ( 13 inches) high.
ORIGIN: this cloth doll is made in Norway, around 1930.
CONDITION: yellowing due to age on the white antique cotton apron and shirt, the mohair hair is quite fragile, some glue residue (hat is glued on head), slight tear on one ear, would benefit some attention, used doll as shown in photos.
Rare doll, difficult to find in this size, as most of Ronnaug Petterssen dolls were smaller, in the range of 6-7 in. SOLD
