Base of purse
About 6" tall with a wide, hollow purse body.
The doll can stand on her own as the base of the purse is wide. She has hand-painted features, blue side glancing eyes, brown eyebrows, pursed up lips, blushed cheeks, long blonde hair, pale pink felt arms bent at the elbows.
Features are hand-painted brightly and are not faded. Chest and arms are firmly stuffed.
A working metal zipper is sewn onto the back for access to the interior of the purse. The hollow purse forms a pouch with zipper opening at the back. The long felt handle is matching red felt, to put on your wrist.
Costume is red felt trimmed with white felt at the hemline, with white felt over apron. In overall good vintage condition, with just a few tiny pinpricks and slight age markings, the right side of apron is missing a small piece of red felt trim - see close-up photos for details.
