Heres an extremely rare pressed cloth doll by the Gre Poir company of France. Gre Poir dolls are made of pressed cloth, similar to and competitors of Lenci dolls from the same era, except Gre Poir dolls are made of cotton rather than wool felt.
This doll is about 17 inches tall, jointed, with human hair and a lovely painted face. Her nose was missing when she was rescued and professionally restored for display in a doll club show. The lace trimmed slip, socks, and shoes are either original or extremely accurate copies, but I think her tweed suit and velvet hat, trimmed with an ostrich feather, are handmade reproductions. The doll does have some water marks and other wear, but shes still lovely, and frankly her condition puts this extraordinarily rare doll into the reach of less-affluent collectors. Please see the photo of a Gre Poir Doll in better condition as shown in the Edwards Cloth Dolls book you will see the astronomical value of these dolls!
She has been kept in a glass case throughout her time with me. Dont miss the chance to add this rare girl to your collection!
