Rare Original Mexican muñeca de cartón Antique Papier Mache Doll- Folk Toy. I have three for sale that I have collected over the years, please see my other items. Measures approx 34cm tall.These dolls, hand made by artisans in Mexico, were modelled on circus trapeze artists and traditionally given to girls, whilst boys were gifted papier mache horses. They are described on irisdelatorre.com (who sells modern versions) as follows“Paper mache dolls otherwise known in Spanish as “muñecas de cartón” are made with a technique called “cartonería” in Mexico. To make “muñecas de cartón” artisans use layers of paper are bonded and molded together with a homemade glue called engrudo. The surface of this technique becomes very hard when it dries, and as a result, it is incredibly durable. Then, they are painted and decorated with acrylic paints, sequins and glitter. This technique has been used to make a variety of crafts for many years. Although there is no certainty of the origins of this toy, it is believed that the paper mache doll was born in the late colonial to early Mexican Independence period, created by poorer families to imitate more expensive porcelain dolls from Spain.”Please message with any questions. Good vintage condition, dusty and paint is scuffed/faded/lightly cracking in parts please see photos for condition. This doll is I believe from the 1960s/70s.
