Josef Eleven Year Old Birthday Doll
"Not a child and not a grown-up yet. But a lady in the making and a lovely one, we bet." She's ready to sew with her embroidery and needle in hand. The eleven year old doll stands 5-3/4" high and is dressed in dark mauve with 24K gold accents.
Josef Originals Birthday Dolls first originated in the mid to late-1940's as Muriel Joseph George designed these creative dolls during the end of World War II. Muriel began designing these dolls to express her love for children, families, animals, and more. Her first designs were produced between 1945 and 1962 in California before moving the manufacture of the dolls overseas. Today, the John Hansen Company faithfully creates these birthday dolls with utmost attention to authenticity for collectors and those who wish to pass the tradition onto new generations.
