I am a bit behind with my Doll Detective posts so here is a new puzzle for us to solve. This query is from Denise about her dolls Violet and Esmee.
This is what Denise has to say about Violet.
Here are violets measurements; she is just over 20” tall.
With bright green closing eyes and dark eyelashes lovely red lips and has what looks like a capital W in her hair-line and 60/54 not that clear as hair plugs are in lettering.
Denise thinks that Violet is wearing her original dress and that she is a transitional doll made of both vinyl and hard plastic. I’d be guessing but feel the style of her dress and body she might be from the mid sixties onwards.
Denise says that Esmee is 15” tall with sleeping closing brown eyes and eye lashes and red lips she has what looks like B.01385 on her neck. Esme is also part hard plastic and part vinyl. Denise did not say if Esmee’s panties are original but she has been redressed. Having a look at the neck mark in the photo it looks a bit different to me, maybe B40535
So if anyone can tell us a bit more about these two pretty dolls please leave a comment below.
