Anili Kitty Doll, 1940s

Anili was an Italian maker of quality dolls, usually of fabric. This is a rare example made of painted celluloid. Very well made, it has a coil system to keep the articulated pieces together. The whiskers are made of nylon, so it must have been made after 1938 or after WWII. It was found complete, with bloomers and plaid dress.

It is 32cm (about one foot) high.
