In addition to their distinctive hand-painted faces and enchanting expressions, Lenci dolls attract collectors' attention because of their elaborate costumes. Often made in intricately pieced felt patterns, the outfits depict figures in several series including sports, international costumes, and celebrities. Lenci made dolls in several sizes from about 7 inches tall for its mascottes and miniatures to 30 inches and taller for some of its celebrity and boudoir dolls.
