Recently I read a post on a Facebook doll site from Val who wants to find out more about her old Estrela doll. I asked her if I could feature the doll here and happily she agreed.
Here is what Val knows about her doll.
- Age: Val has had the doll for at least 25 years but she was not new when Val got her.
- Size: approx 85 cm so she is a big girl
- Eyes: blue sleep eyes and rooted eyelashes.
- Hair: Nylon, Saran, rooted.
- Clothing : Looks like she has her original shoes. The dress is what she was wearing when Val got her.
- Other Features: She has a mama box
- Markings: Estrela S/A. IND. Bras. VR90
Val says she is quite a heavy doll.
I have been doing a bit of reading and to me she resembles the Patti Playpal dolls. Estrela did make these under licence from Ideal so it’s possible.
What do the other Doll Detectives out there think?
Thanks Val for sharing this very pretty doll.
