HAPPY SAINT DAVID's DAY! This lovely doll is a walking doll and has a tongue and teeth. I purchased her in an Antique Shop in Hereford, many years ago. She is C.1935. I was told by the salesman that the doll originally belonged to the daughter of Field Marshall Goering (World War 2). (but there is no paper-work prove it). The (German) daughter married an English farmer, and they lived in Durston Court, Herefordshire. She eventually went into a Residential Home and some of her items (including this doll), were sent to the Antique Shop, from where I purchased the doll. She has a composition body, She is a walking doll and has a tongue and teeth. When purchased by me, she was dressed in a young child's modern summer dress). She is 36" high. There are no makers marks on the doll. I have dressed her in this Welsh costume for Saint David's Day

ENJOY!
