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 real life

 

These little Grodnertal are so rare to find now.  She comes complete with her little cotton and lace pillow.  Any other accessories or items she is photographed with are not hers and are for display purposes only.   Do ask if you have any queries, and click on Contact Us if you wish to purchase.  

The little All Original GRODNERTAL with her PILLOW is priced at ₤345
