Item Description

The extraordinary Simpich Character Doll enterprise operated from an Old Colorado City building for nearly thirty years. Beautiful handmade figures were created here and shipped to points across the globe; and visitors were welcomed to tour the workshop areas where each character was painstakingly crafted.  Because of skyrocketing production costs, in early 2007—after 54 years of production—doll artists Jan and Bob Simpich decided to close their business, thus preserving the distinct legacy of every Simpich Doll being handmade in Colorado. 

The doll up for bid is in pristine shape, with the year "2000" marked on bottom.  No chips, nicks, wear or fading can be seen.  Add to your Christmas Carolers collection, or start a new one!
