I found these beautiful dolls in Goodwill and I bought them both for $11.00. I can't seem to find any information about them online. They are 16" tall. The boxes both say "A Product Of Midwestern Mfg. Co. St. Louis Mo." One box has $1.98 written on back in pencil. The back of both doll's heads say what looks like PLATED N CLLESIAC with a copyright symbol and 1962. There is no other lettering on them. As you can see the boxes are a little different but they both say, "Sheri has a stunning wardrobe with costumes for all occasions. YOU MUST SEE THEM!" However, one doll is clearly named Shari. I'd love to know more about these dolls if anyone has any information.

    Hi Sorry I missed your dolls . They have faces that were used on several dolls which leads me to think they were bought by Midwestern mfg and sold under their name but not made by them . I have seen this face in different sizes but not in box . The names make one wonder if they were representing twins with name changed or if that was a error . I would like to see back of their necks and back of box if possible .To narrow down the maker. They are not common to find in their boxes and I also wonder if they were a promotional doll. They are not high quality vinyl dolls but just beautiful . I always love the heavy oh so 1960's eyeliner on dolls like yours . You mention their fashions are there photo's of their clothes on box?
    Here is one with a similiar face in small size

    Hi. The back of both boxes is blank. It would have been great if they had pictures of their outfits! I did try to take pictures of the back of their necks but none of the photos were legible. (I took a lot too.) I collect Barbie and Bild Lilli clone dolls. I am familiar with the "Hello Dolly" doll and hope to get one to add to my collection. I love these dolls.
