Hello, I just found this doll at a tag sale. Does anyone know anything about her? She appears to be unmarked. She is approximately 16 inches tall. Thanks in advance! Julie

    Hi does she have elbows and knee's that bend ?
  2. Jewels Jewels, 2 years ago
    Hi Mani! No, she doesn't, but she does have a waist that swivels.

    Ok then she is a Miss Revlon look a like doll I forgot to ask about waist ,glad you added that . Now I need you to look under her hair line do you see letters like a VT and are you sure she is 16 inches maybe 15 ? She has the face of madame Alexander doll but body of an Ideal or Uneeda doll . I need the Letters behind head they maybe in hairline so check there also .

    Thank you for the info! I combed through her hair and the only thing I could see was "27C"

    The C has me ? I can think of no company that used just a C . I am going to say she is a competitor to Miss Revlon doll made by any number of companies . Deluxe Reading , Allied ,Valentine ect . She is a late 1950's vinyl fashion doll . Look inside her clothes by seams and see if by chance they tagged her clothes . Also look at her mid back for a mark . In meantime here is one that is similar . Lots of these girls we just can't be sure who made them

    Thanks Mani for your time! Her clothes are unmarked and I double checked and the marking is "27C" :) I like that she is from the fifties and I rescued her as she was filthy and I think no one else wanted her because of that, but she cleaned right up--no scrubbing required :D Thanks again! You always come through! I have to get another pic of the Ruth Gibbs doll up (that you helped me identify) as the pic I posted got removed b/c of the quality of the pic (cell phone :/)

    My last doll was like her :-) It was smaller a Little Miss Revlon I got it when I was 10 years old and my Mom said I was to old for a doll:-) But I insisted. Now I had a choice between her and the First Barbie ! Boy If I only knew to buy the whole shelf full of number 1 Barbies but they they looked so odd . Me and my g/f stood and looked at them as they put up display in awe and how strange she looked , Then they unpacked all the clothes and laid them on a shelf they were beautiful !! But we couldn't afford to buy such nice doll clothes we sewed are own from scraps . But I remember that day like yesterday . We both picked Miss Revlon she was prettier :-)

    Glad you enjoyed my memories Jewel :-) But I sure could have been rich if I had bought about 20 of them Barbies . I lived on West coast then and it was one of the first places Mattel tested Barbie and the reaction . Mine was not so good then as we had never seen a doll quite like her and her eyebrows and eyes looked rather freaky . The tamed her look down by 3 rd Barbie to be made :-)

    Hi. She looks A LOT like my Belle Margie dolls made by the Belle Doll & Toy Co.
