Mini Bisque Girl with Flower Penny Doll



1 in stock


Mini Bisque girl with a Flower Penny doll in  good playwear condition, considering age. Painted orange hair with 2 pink flowers tops off face details. Molding of ruffled dress and stripped stockings is good.  A spalsh of bight pink on front of skirt is visible with shoes painted bright orange..  Sculpting is very detailed for small piece but a bit crude on head. Details include a painted pink and green flower.  This delightful Penny doll does not have a country of origina mark making pre 1930s.

“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.
