Extremely Rare Poupee (doll) from the Louis Vuitton Toy Shop. Doll is pre-1941. Made from a type of plastic (celluloid?) with delicate hand painted features, dressed in a detailed regional costume of Bretagne (Brittany). Her original hang tag reads Je m'appelle/DONATIENNE/mon pays est/Batz sur Mer/en Bretagne which roughly translated is "My name is DONATIENNE and my land is Batz sur Mer in Brittany". Batz-sur-Mer was part of Brittany until 1941 when it was separated by the Vichy government. Condition is excellent and all original. Doll stands 8 1/2 inches (22 cm) tall and her Louis Vuitton label is under her apron. Circa 1930's
