Item/Description: Vintage ca 1980-1981 Avon American Heirloom china porcelain bisque head cloth doll.
This charming Avon doll has a china head and cloth body that is lightly weighted at its base. Her hands are cleverly graphically designed on her material arms so as to look as if they’re “on hips/behind her back”.
Her fashionable Victorian-esque lace-collared “outfit” consists of assorted fabric patterns/designs in soothing hues of burnt orange, reddish-orange, peach, contrasting shades of lighter and darker teal green, camel, and royal blue, and around her waist is a stunningly vibrant royal blue ribbon tied in a bow at her back.
She was originally a “lavender fragrance sachet” doll, but that scent is now only very faintly present.
In addition to displaying just beautifully as a decorative addition to one’s doll &/or vanity collections, she would also cleverly serve as a handy-dandy pin cushion, given the nature of her “stuffed” body.

Condition Summary: While she remains in exceptional aesthetic condition, her original lavender-scented fragrance is only very faintly present. Her china face is perfect, exhibiting no nicks, chips, cracks, breaks, repairs or paint loss to any of her vibrantly colorful hand painting. Her cloth body evinces no rips/tears or odors. Underneath her right arm 2-3 teeny tiny stray threads are visible. The abundant variety of colors in her patterned material remain vivid - there is no color fading. Even her exquisitely-colored blue waist bow is pristinely intact!
