Make your little Angel feel special on her 7th Birthday. This is a charming figurine, a Josef Original, which are now highly collectible.
Josef Originals Birthday Dolls first originated in the mid to late 1940's as Muriel Joseph George designed these creative figurines during the end of World War II. Muriel began designing them 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 to Japan for economic reasons. This piece proudly wears the original label which says Japan.
These earlier ones were more detailed. Notice the gold in her hair, the doll, and the fingers.
These have been a tradition for years. Perhaps you remember having one as a child and wish to continue the joy for your little girl?
The price also includes free shipping within the US, free gift wrapping and free shipping insurance.
Measurements: The figurine is 4" high, 4" wide and 3" deep.
