When I was photographing dolls yesterday I took this photo of a doll that I really don’t know anything about. Like most of the group I photographed yesterday she is about 18 inches tall but she appears to be much older than the rest. She is unmarked so finding out who she is will be quite a task unless I find a photo of a similar looking doll.
This doll is made entirely of hard plastic and has a walking mechanism, her head turns from side to side when her legs move. She is quite a slim doll with long arms. Her sleep eyes are blue and she has “real” eyelashes although some are missing now. Her hair is the coarser kind of Saran similar to my English doll Christine but unlike Christine her hair is a glued on wig not rooted into her head. She doesn’t have a “mama”. I don’t think her dress is original, it does up with velcro, but I believe her shoes and socks might be. My guess is that she might be from the 1950s but other than that I really have no idea.
If anyone out there can tell me more I’d really love to hear from you.
