Our Porcelain Doll Austrian Zillertal Girl measures 30 cm/11,8 inches including her stand which keeps her standing upright wherever you want her to look best. Her head and limbs are made of porcelain and handmade and the body is made of soft fabric and stuffed. Her beautiful eyes are made from glass and the material for her lovely golden hair is also used for professional wigs. Our porcelain doll’s handmade clothing is made from fabric used for real traditional costumes.
Porcelain Doll Austrian Zillertal Costume
The “Zillertal” is an overwhelmingly scenic valley region of Tyrol where the traditional costumes are still something you see around daily. The traditional festive dress includes a long black woolen skirt with a black bodice which is often made from velvet. To lighten up the up the solemn black dress, ladies wear a unicolor silk apron, very often in a soft shade of pink like our porcelain doll. Every lady wears a flower in her cleavage – our girl went for a white gerbera. The most unique feature, however, is the typical “Röckl” hat that you only find in this region: a flat black hat with two golden tassels, often decorated with flowers. If you love Alpine Austria, then this porcelain doll is the perfect gift to treat yourself.
