This vintage Penny doll is the perfect little wisp of love as she clutches her doll!  This dolll has no chips or cracks and has nice molded details! Paint is is simple  highlighting pink cap, aqua shoes and collar and cuffs have a touch of blue. The painted face details are good especially the eyes. Bright white bisque overall. MADE IN JAPAN is molded on back with additional marking A/24 with JAPAN painted on bottom of feet..

Approx: 2 3/4″ tall

“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.
