About Lenci Doll : Lenci dolls are wool felt dolls that feature heat-pressed wool faces with painted features. They typically have intricately made wool and organdy clothing, adorned with elaborate felt flowers, hats and/or accoutrements. They are at the top end of the luxury goods market. Today they are considered highly prized collectables.

The Lenci Company (1918-2001) was established in Turin (Torino) by Enrico di Scavini and Elena (nee Konig) Scavini after World War I, around 1918. They received a patent for their process for pressing the heads in 1919. The Lenci company produced not only high quality dolls, but luxury goods, toys, puppets and household wares, including decorative ceramics that were sold primarily sold in the USA, Europe and Japan. In its heyday they had over 10,000 items in their product line.
