VC8030GC: 1800-1850 Mummy Doll
This is an unusual and outstanding circa 1800-1850 papier mache French doll which is intended to represent a mummy. It is a toy rattle and makes a rattle noise when shaken. This rare toy has been displayed in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art since the 1940s and was purchased when the museum sold its acquisitions. Painted papier mache doll has molded, painted features with wear to paint, especially to painted black hair. Wrapped in silk ribbon, to represent mummy wrappings. The silk ribbon has shattered in some areas, but overall very good condition. The rattle has a wooden stand, which allows it to be displayed standing upright. It measures 14~3/4" tall.
