Neapolitan Creche Doll

A wonderful late Neapolitan Creche Doll with amazing detailing. Dating to around 1800 this very rare doll still remains in good condition. The face is especially good quality with beautiful paintwork and a lovely expression. The dress is fragile although has retained its original colour. It is threadbare in places where you can see through to the dolls legs.
The flowers are later to the original doll but work beautifully and give it an extra vibrancy. Creche Dolls were initially made in Naples to depict the nativity but as demand for them grew they became more elaborate and as wells as Christ, Mary, Joseph, Shepherd and the Wise Men many other characters were made from every aspect of life from the time.
