Beware of Fraudulent Lenci Auction Listing on eBay

I just had an email from Stefanie the owner of this rare Lenci Spanish Lady doll to tell me that her pictures are currenty being used by another seller on ebay  who does not have her doll  - and her doll is NOT for sale. I searched ebay and found an auction using her pictures and a copy of english part of her description  at eBay listing no 130619111628. I am assured by Stefanie that her doll is not for sale and the person using her pictures is using them without her permission. She has notified eBay about this issue.

Her original auction was at this link and that auction is now closed.

Black Anili Dolls on eBay

This time of the year usually turns up a few treats for Lenci collectors on eBay.  Many of you will already know that Anili is the daughter of Elena Scavini(Madame Lenci). When Madame Lenci sold her company to the Garella's in the early 1930's she stayed on as artistic director for a number of years, and then left the company. Her daughter Anili started a new company called Anili, they made felt dolls dolls under the Anili label. Madame Lenci herself was involved in the design of the dolls so they are of interest to Lenci collectors for this reason. Lenci was Elena Scavini's nickname, it is a diminutive of her original German name 'Helenchen'. When she sold the business she could no longer make dolls under the Lenci name. This week on eBay I see two black Anili dolls that I have not seen before from seller palm7875
They are black dolls in two versions of the Anili doll molds

Ebay member beamdoggie is selling a rare Lenci Bambina on eBay this week. This is a lovely 1930's Lenci Bambina in fine condition and a treat for some Lenci collector for the holidays. It is rare to see a Lenci bambina at auction so just looking at the pictures is a treat. The seller has added a picture from Nancy Lazenby's book  Lenci: The History and the Dolls that looks like the same exact doll.
