Adorable, 27 tall, antique, BLACK or dark brown velveteen cloth, exotic native islander, girl doll, circa 1930s , by Norah Wellings, England, (sewn-in label attached to one foot: Made in England/By/Norah Wellings) with huge, brown glass , flirty (side-glancing , not moving) eyes, lovely eyelashes, broad smiling mouth, with lovely expression, applied pierced ears with original dangle earrings. Her head is covered with her original stitched on, thick black, curly hair wig and she has individually stitched fingers with separate thumbs and individually stitched toes. She wears her original colorful, raffia grass skirt and matching co lo rf ul , large wood beaded necklace around her neck along with matching wood beaded anklets. She adds real interest to any collection and has tab-type joints at her shoulders and hips so that she can sit or be posed in many ways (similar to a bed doll). She is soft stuffed with no holes or damages. She retains all her original charm when these dolls were "all the rage". She has no repairs or odors and is from a smoke free home. Her Norah Wellings friends (also shown) are not included and each listed separately. We presently have a nice group of these various ethnic dolls which are fun to collect.
