Looks pretty good, but Cinderella's shoes have some paint loss. About BAPS Dolls The size averages about 4-5.
Adult dolls are 5 ¼ inches to the scaled child 3 ½ inches. The framework is wrapped with a strip of a soft, fibrous paper material; legs and arms are then covered with felt.
The head is the last thing attached after the facial painting is completed. Facial features are hand painted. Post war faces have more detail with faces being darker and eyes shadowed. The later dolls have faces with stenciled features rather than hand painted. Many of the animals have embroidered eyes or sequined eyes and the entire metal foot is covered with felt.
The later witch has a much more detailed face than earlier one. The cloth covered doll head was sewn with floss cotton hair. Fine stitches complete the seams, and then the dolls were then clothed with fanciful outfits. A great deal of craftsmanship was given to these dolls along with props in many cases.
While some have a few moth holes or faded color, for the most part the dolls have remained in great condition considering their 50-60 year age. Most unique to the dolls is the weighted metal feet. In most cases, the dolls can stand on their own without a doll stand. These metal feet are one way to identify the dolls, since there are no marks or tags, but some Grecon dolls did have metal feet too.
