Hold your horses!!!! This is way different and I'm sure you don't have these three ladies.
We have a total of three, vintage European Women Puppet Items, two heads and one complete puppet!!!!!! These three hail from the 1950's if not earlier. One comes with the body, not in terrific shape, but the body is there (where your hand goes), the other two are just heads, awesome!
First we have what looks like it might be a princess or queen, she has a metal crown on her head, roughly made but it's still a crown. There is very vintage lace attached to crown, she also has some hair on her head, Red in color, not a lot but there is some hair there. Beautiful Blue eyes, not sure if glass, but they are Blue, Pink cheeks and Red lips. All this on a fabric covered head mold stitched together @ center, a mesh type fabric, skin tone. Her neck is heavy cardboard.
The second one looks like a maid type character, with the same blue eyes, Pink cheeks and Red lips, more smiling. Her nose is more predominate as well as eyebrows are stitched in Red/Brown thread or yarn. She has some hair at front of head, parted in center with buns on each side of her cheeks, she obviously had a cap or hat on which had minimal hair showing. She has a heavy cardboard neck as well as same fabric for head covering.
Lastly, this little puppet is the most complete with body and hands, not in the best shape, but none the less she is complete. She looks like a Parisian lady with her Auburn hair, Red Tam perched on the side of her head, eyes closed, Pink cheeks, stitched eyebrows which match haircolor, Red lips and hair in "bob" style. She is sporting some type of ornate collar of Red Felt with Silver underlining. Her dress is Blue with a ornate Gold trim. She has felt, skin tone hands, more like a mitten hand. The dress is stained as well as her Felt hands are somewhat marked. She too has the heavy cardboard neck.
The length of the heads are: approximately 4 1/2" long, the one with dress is approximately 10 1/2" long from hat to end of dress (where your hand goes). The condition of these three is awesome, a little rough, but they are absolutely terrific!
