French Souvenir Doll, Savoie Region

This regal doll probably dates from the early 1950s. She wears a black flocked velvet skirt, black blouse, gold apron and very pale pink scarf.  She wears the traditional close headdress of the Savoie area, peaked in the front and on the sides.  She is still wearing her gold crucifix necklace.  This lovely lady measures 7 1/2" tall and has movable arms and legs.   She is in good condition for her 60+ years.

 

Sadly, these beautiful little dolls are treasures only from the past, as the French manufacturers have either folded or gone into other manufacturing lines. They are beautiful little snippets of French history.
