Original handmade porcelain Doll Swiss Appenzell Girl that will be perfect for everybody who loves Switzerland. This lady is wearing a typical festive dress from the Appenzell valley. A most beautiful gift idea!
Our Porcelain Doll Swiss Appenzell 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.
Appenzell is the name of a town as well as the surrounding region in the Alpine German-speaking part of Switzerland which has become world-famous for its cheese and its stunning scenery. As in all parts of Switzerland, the traditional costumes are still worn and held dear in this area. An Appenzell lady wears a festive dress made from unicolor fabric with a differently colored apron often embroidered by hand. The tight bodice is laced with a silver chain to show off a lady’s slim waist. The most striking feature is the intricate headdress made with black and white lace. Like in many other regions, the type of bonnet indicates the marital status: our girl is not married yet.
