Not so much a mystery doll as some we have featured, this doll is one of my own. With all the excitement of the celluloid dolls and the things that Naomi and I gave each other for Christmas and the work I’ve been doing on my house I had not got around to showing you the doll that she got for me at the big whole town garage sale in Oatlands back in October. Naomi briefly mentioned this doll in her post “An Exciting Day as a Collector”.
Naomi thought that she was probably a doll from the 1960s and I think she is correct. Recently I took the time to clean her up and redress her and while doing that I looked for doll marks. Predictably there were none but she looks a lot like my other sixties dolls so I am guessing that she is either British or possibly an Australian Pedigree which were often unmarked.
She is about 50cm or 20 inches tall from the crown of her head to her soles and has a slim body.
Here she is after a tidy up. Her dress is a bit old and stained, It came from the Op Shop and I intend to replace it with something better later on but I think it suits her better than what she was wearing before. I do think she has very pretty hair and lovely blue eyes.
