Vintage Doll Head Figurine

Here is a treasured Vintage item that belonged to my Grandmother. After she died, this is one thing my father wanted. My Grandmother died before I was born and I always remember this sitting in the bookcase part of my mothers desk. I always thought she was pretty. There is a note inside written by my Grandmother.  "One time when I was maybe 9 or 10 we came to Charleston. I was given 25 cents to spend. This is what I bought."  That would of been about 1902. Now there is another note in there, a note from my Mother when she gave the doll head to me.

You can see the note in the picture. The 25 cent sales tag in still inside. The markings are made in Germany.

Thanks to Robin at Decorating Tennis Girl, I am in hooking up with Vintage Thingie Thursday at Colorado Lady.

Welcome to Vintage Thigies Thursday! What a precious family treasure...more so by the note by your grandmother and then your mother. The doll is so sweet alone, but with those notes, just a true treasure! Very pretty!! Have a great VTT!

How wonderful to have the notes. Your grandmother must have felt that the figurine was important enough that it would be passed along.

What a nice thing to have, especially with the notes and price.

What a wonderful vintage memory and treasure. That is great they both left a note. That makes it even more special. It will be a nice thing to continue to hand down. I loved your doll and the history behind it.
