RARE ARCHIVAL HEIDI SET
CREATED 20 YEARS AGO
Heidi, the enduring children's tale of a spunky little orphaned girl sent to live with her surly Grandfather in the Swiss Alps, was written in 1880 by Johanna Spyri. R. John Wright was commissioned by the Little Switzerland Doll Shop twenty years ago to bring the characters in this lovely tale to life. Now we are offering some low matching number archival sets in pristine mint in box condition. This impressive collection lends itself to many display tableaux.
