Gondola Stuff: Felt Felze

New entry in my occasional series where I show off my gondola stuff.

This is an antique gondola made of velvet and other materials. I bought it about 15 years ago at a flea market in Santa Cruz, California. The seller said it’s about 100 years old, but I have no idea if that’s true. Anyone out there know how to tell or what to look for? IMG_9680

The whole thing is a little over a foot long. It has some really nice details to it, as you can see from these close ups. But the felze is falling down. I’ve meant to get it fixed but am unsure where to go. Maybe someone who restores old dolls?

    There is a doll shop in downtown Campbell. Maybe they know where/how to get it fixed.
