A LOVELY TOTALLY
ORIGINAL GRODNERTAL (SO UNUSUAL WITH HER HEAD PAINTED
LOOKING TO ONE SIDE) WITH HER LITTLE PILLOW
This is a
wonderful, tiny Grodnertal, totally original and which
at one time was in an early Dolls House. The
Grodnertal herself, measures only just over ONE INCH tall.
I can never believe how the wonderful craftsmen back in
the earlier part of the 19th Century could carve and
then joint these tiny little dolls. As usual, the head and torso is all one piece with the head and
shoulder plate painted - and she is so very different -
look closely she is painted looking to the side! I
cannot remember seeing one painted in this way before.
Something very different for a collector. The
arms are jointed at the shoulders and the elbows and the
legs at the hips and knees. Her little lower legs
have painted black stockings and red shoes. She
wears her original long dress of cream cotton with a
lilac silk panel down the front. The silk is becoming
fragile and her little feet do try to poke out to the
side of the silk where the seam is undoing. Do
remember when viewing the photographs that several have
been taken closely so she does appear even prettier in
on picture for a larger view.
