Vintage Doll

I took a picture of this antique doll with a bit creepy appearance in the fascinating Museum of Dolls and Toys in Angera (Varese, Italy). In sixteen rooms of the beautiful Rocca Borromea, are exhibited mainly vintage dolls, richly dressed and equipped, but also toys and mechanical automata from the eighteenth century onwards. In its sector, it is one of the largest if not the largest museum in Europe.
