Unknown Had To Have Doll ... She's not Unknown any more!

I have no idea who this little lady is but I fell in love and she only cost 20p lol bargin a?
Her dress is immaculate so I don't think she's ever been played with...anyone got any info on her I'd appreciate it!

UPDATE - 2011 - Unknown is now known!

It turns out she is actually a Kurhn Doll Clone , I thought she was very similar to them, but as she has rooted lashes and a mass of purple hair so I was thrown, and after my 2 girls arrived from Italy I noticed there were a few slight differences between them all, although as my 2 Kurhn girls are both very different from each other and one of them came without her factory face on, so I had to repaint her, so that could be the reason for that, it threw me even more!

Until one day, I was innocently wandering around Flickr, drooling over other people's dolly collections, and I spotted this upload below, from a user called "topocn2000" ...

Here it is larger in case you can't take in the detail too well, and so you can read the labels beneath the dolls:

So I left a message asking if the one on the left is a real Kurhn Doll and 1 month later, I had my reply:

So now I know:  My unknown is a Globo Flow Fairy Doll... and you do too now!

But there's more, after my short convo' with "topocri2000" another user asked a question, which I found very interesting too as I don't really know much about Italian dolls, except for this one and the Hasbro/Ceppirratti collaboration on the "Tanya" Ice Cream Sindy Doll range, see my other posts...

I'll be looking out for them too now as I'd love to see one in the "flesh" as it were!

Oh while I'm still on this subject, here's a link to topocri2000's Flickr Photostream were I took my screenshots from, while you're there have a look at some of the other lovely dolls topcri2000 has:
