This is a rare and beautiful Ethnic, Brazillian Bahia doll, representing a stylish lady in jewels and finery. Bahia dolls are known for their porcupine quill nails.This one also has embroidered teeth and is 17.5 tall. In three years, they will be 80 and then will be considered antiques. As an almost antique lady, she has various wear, loose threads, and the little imperfections that come with age. Check out the photos to see the closeup details. I tried to capture small details as best as I could.
As her second owner, I displayed her (and her sisters) encased behind glass to protect them. I've not attempted to repair, clean, or refurbish her in any way. She is for sale in as-is condition with some missing fingers, some missing nails, and some painted nails. This doll comes with a letter from the original owner explaining how she came into possession and a two-page historical document explaining the origins of the Bahia doll.She will be packaged in a new 24" - 6" - 6 box with white packing peanuts and sealed with tamper-proof tape. The item "Bahia Brazil Lady 17.5 in.
