Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

Materials

teak, fur, wool felt, leather

This charming little cave lady is very hard to find, as is her husband and the ape made in the same style. She is marked Chris Vejle Denmark (Vejle is the town in Denmark where these were made and Chris is the designer and/or manufacturer).

She made of teak with feet of a darker wood and arms of leather cord. Her hair is rabbit fur---it has a rather odd-looking part down the center where the edges of the hide were glued to the head (which is wedges-shaped on top) and fur is directional. This is original.

Her skirt is the original wool felt and it's faded, as you can see, but there's no moth damage. Eyes are little black glass beads.

One foot has a split in it that isn't noticeable on top but you can tell on the bottom. The other foot had a chunk missing at the heel; this has been neatly mended. The arms look like they split and were reglued at the shoulders but they seem solid now. There are chips in the body around the breasts but this would have been done in the making. My price reflects these issues.
