MY BELGIAN LIBERATION DOLL
Website Id: (Europe - Belgium - 004)
I thought I would give you all a "nice smile" today, to cheer you up on this dull and dreary Lockdown Day.
This cheerful young girl is a Liberated Belgian doll, and is 13" high. She has a bisque (?) head with painted features, and is jointed at the neck and shoulders. She is stitched at the top of her legs, to enable her to sit. She was made by "UNICA" just after the Second World War in honour of the Liberation of the German Occupation. She is C.1945. There is a similar doll featured in the book: "European Costumed Dolls" by Polly and Pam Judd, pages 11 and 12.
MARKS: None. There would have originally been a cloth tag on the bottom of her dress.
Today it was announced that WALES will still be in Lockdown for another three weeks. But things are improving slightly.
I still have dolls waiting to be catalogued, and listed on my website, which I am hoping to do soon, including some very pretty Japanese dolls..
