Rare Antique 1920s Lenci Felt Boudoir Flapper Portrait Lady Doll

⭕ She is not perfect, but how often do you see an early Lenci lady doll in fashion typical of the 1920s - early 1930s era? She measures approx. 28 tall. I believe her outfit and boots are original to her. Her outfit is made of felt, a super fitted jacket is over a purple tank style top. I cant remove her jacket as I am afraid I could damage her as it is so fitted to her. No problems noted with her jacket and top. The skirt does have fading and some small holes in it. Her boots have quite a bit of damage to them, one sole is missing the top part and there are rips on the sides of them. She also has what I believe to be her original purse. She has the partial Lenci signature on the bottom of her foot. Her torso and upper body appear to be in good condition from what I can tell. Her legs have issues. One leg was detached from the upper leg joint and was restitched to that joint with a piece of muslin. The other leg has fabric missing at the lower part of the leg and you can see the original straw inside. I have included a greatly magnified picture of her face as there is some paint missing in sections of her lips and eyelashes that you dont notice that much in her original size. Also, her face has some dust and a few small surface holes on her left cheek. No restoration has been done to her face. Back of her head, there are a few moth holes near the seam line up her neck. She truly is special and deserves a special place in someones home, preferably with some of her early Lenci friends :).
