c1950s Welsh Guard Grecon Doll @ £69.00SOLD
Here is a fabulous and increasingly rare vintage Grecon doll in a Welsh Guard costume from the 1950s. He has wire limbs bound in wool and drawn on facial features. He looks rather handsome in his red felt jacket with white felt belt, bead buttons, button/ sequin buckle, white and black felt embellishments, and wool stripes. He has a black velvet helmet with black leather chin strap. His dark navy felt uniform trousers have an additional embellishment of red woollen stripes. He has the usual Grecon doll black lead shoes.
On his back he has the GRECON MADE IN ENGLAND label. He is in a good played with condition, there is a teeny bit of paint loss on his lead shoes plus there is about ½” of red wool strand missing from middle of the stripe on his left trouser leg. He measures 4” high to the very top of his helmet. I have handled many Grecon dolls in my 25 years of trading, but this is the first Welsh Guard Grecon doll I have handled.
