We are proud to offer an amazing museum quality 19th Century Neapolitan doll still in its original linen and silk clothing. The carved bust extends into the upper arms and middle torso of this rare artefact. The clothing is very fragile due to its age, the reverse shows most of this wear, this doll can still be hung against a wall our mounted to a stand as it still has a brass hook in place at the rear.

This item is completely solid in structure and form, aged patina with weathering has taken place across all its surfaces. The clothing is very fragile and has weathered away towards the back, its torn in sections and unstitched due to its age and use. The face has flaked paint which we feel gives this item its macabre look. Please review all the photos provided as part of this advert.
