Flower Girl Mini Penny Doll


Darling Vintage Penny Doll!

1 in stock


Mini Flower Girl Penny doll in  good playwear condition, considering age. Painted red flapper cap and pleated skirt are painted front and back.  Sculpting is very detailed including bunch of flowers and painted blue highlights. Face sculpt and paint are very good for small Penny doll.There are NO major cracks or breaks! This delightful Penny doll is marked in mold on back – JAPAN 2.

“Penny” dolls with the easiest to find on the market are from Japan but there are wonderful versions from Germany and France as well. These dolls are usually made in bisque and are painted in bright colors. Since the bisque is not fired a second time after painting the paint wears off easy. Value is more based on details, condition of paint and arm positions, with crossed arms the most unusual. The dolls were often sold in sweet shops for a penny thus the name. The dolls were also sold in theme sets such as a wedding party complete with a little church or a group of cowboys, cowgirls and Indians. It is more difficult to find these still in sets but they do occasionally show up. These are fun to collect since there are so many varieties out there. I like to display in old print trays with a sheet of glass on front so I can hang on wall.
