I have collected dolls for nearly 3o yrs . My Mentor has been a well known doll expert . I have enjoyed doing work at Doll Museum and doll hospital over a 25 yr spanI have collected dolls for nearly 3o yrs . My Mentor has been a well known doll expert . I have enjoyed doing work at Doll Museum and doll hospital over a 25 yr span . I am past member of UFDC and a past Member of Dewees Cochran Foundation . My current passion is for mannequin dolls/ Under 30 " . I have collected French Fashions, China's, bisque, 50's dolls and others through the years . I have published a few articles on Dolls in past . Love sharing knowledge and dolls with others . We never quit learning or seeing something new . Myself and My Husband had a large booth at an Antique shop for many yrs . We had all kinds of antiques and collectibles and I guess I have a vast interest in all types of Antiques ect we also had vintage toys of all sorts . I just narrowed down to what I love and that is dolls . He loves Glassware and had a lot of it but I was always afraid I would break it so only kept a very few pieces . And of Coarse I have to add we have a large Elvis collection :-) I enjoy helping to identify dolls please let me add that when I say it is newer it is from 80's to present and not all dolls are real valuable nor can you tell age by clothes ect . They maybe yellowed but more likely from cig smoke than age . I find a lot of joy in sharing and seeing new things to learn from . I am a Junker at heart :-) I have a great passion for music all my family were musicians and I collect 45's and lps but prefer 45's . Love doo wop and the the 60's girls groups .My Email is Manikin1234@hotmail.com Please note all I have trouble seeing black on white text so if I mess up writing it is because I don't always see each letter and to avoid strain on my eyes you will see typo's from time to time :-( If I ID your doll please let me know you recieved reply or I never know if I typed it all for nothing it is all I ask :-) and answer questions I may have to Id it .

  10. love123 Only what I wrote in description. I believe they were made by PMA (plastic molded Arts co ) in USA and sent to soldiers by sweethearts at home to their soldier oversea's .
  11. Expert on Indian dolls from Museum says he is not a Indian doll but made by a boy scout or another camp project. Beading is all wrong for it to made by any Indian tribe rather a attempt for a person t...
  12. OK a expert on Indian dolls agreed that not made by a Indian but more likely by perhaps a boy scout or another project done by kids at camp . The beading is all wrong. could be from 1920's or newer an...
  13. Hi your doll is a transitional Barbie. she has a number 3 body and number 4 head.They would have used left over parts when they went to number 4. it is not 3 head . The body has more value than head a...

  19. oops that rub a pencil over mark it will wipe of easily but might make it more clear to see TM
  20. She is a number 3 then you might rube a pencil over mark by Barbie I blew up photo and hard to read but suspect it is TM her body may have been from a very used mold and loses it clarity, She is wo...
  21. I will have a museum friend that collected Indian dolls look at it but it will take several days . I don't see Inuit but I did learn from working in museum American Indians did not make mistakes when ...
  22. And please correct me as you can fell hair more than I can see on a photo are her bangs same texture as hair ? If so let me know :-) the white on chest does imply a color change of number 3 but I need...
  23. Hi your doll is a number 4 or 5 not a 3 . The 3 still has soft bangs and she turned white and blotchy . So about ears there is a treatment Barbie collectors have used to cure it . Lovely doll and I al...
  24. Well then I would say Mens and also width of B/D makes for a mans width D more than a women would . B is medium and D wide . A small man . The heels are small and more narrow than a regular male shoe ...
  25. Can you show them from side angle ? Do they have a heel ?
  26. Share I believe you see a intuit symbol . I see to many imperfections in beading and even children had to get the beading exact . That still leaves me wondering . I would like to hold it :-)
  27. I am not sure of age either , it might well be South America doll. Hard to tell without holding it . It strikes me beading is not perfect and that would make me question if Indian made or made by some...
  28. Great old photo ! love it Alan :-)
  29. They appear to me to be woman's shoes . And the size 7 1/2 pretty much confirms that . Not many men wear a size that small . Very cool looking style .
  30. stunning !!
  31. Wonderful ! I hope someone on site can ID the tribe for you !
  32. Very nice !!

  34. 1937 Horsman Company Jo Jo doll made of composition and in excellent condition ! Love her .
  35. ok and your welcome :-)
  36. She is a fantastic look a like so is still a wonderful doll . Just not as a valuable as a True Lenci . I did not notice eyes till I re looked at her :-( But I love her and she still has value ,
  37. Well I do see red dots by eyes so let me research her more as Lenci I don't believe did that .
  38. She has all the right marks for a Lenci . Look and see they often tagged clothes . I would say she is a Lenci sometimes just had a hang tag .
  39. PS your family gave you 2 very valuable gifts , your very fortunate :-)
  40. It is a Kathe Kruse (Germany) mark I blew it up to see better ! You have 2 very collectible dolls and with excellent value !
  41. What is face made of I can't tell by photo ? Is it painted cloth ?
  42. Looks like a kathe kruse doll. I will look more in a bit when I can ok
  43. Appears to be a Lenci Doll (Italy)but there were many look a likes made . Lenci's are very collectible . There clothes were usually embellished with felt ' Look on bottom of her foot to see if it is ...
  44. Nice sculpt but I am afraid he would freak me out in the house . Pretty unique though .
  45. I like Little Lulu :-) Nice piece of history what we did before Pcs ! Read comics . xoxo
  46. Another magnificent addition to collection Phil ! It just doesn't get any better . Love it ! xoxo
  47. It is hard to see her very good on photo so I would imagine you could tell her better if you saw one . These mask dolls were popular in late 40's till 70's . I can not tell what face is made of as the...
