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 .

  13. Lil Red Riding hood I sure remember that one
  14. Called Mama dolls because crier box was supposed to sound like doll saying "Mama" :-) Arranbee marked their Mama dolls R&B and only made them in composition that I know of .
  15. She is a Mama doll and dates from 50's . original clothes but hard to know maker when not marked as many companies were making these types of dolls with crier in stomach . It is supposed to sound like...
  16. Look at Princess Margaret doll. Hard to say what she was dressed in as they usually were in very elaborate gowns . She is hard plastic from 1950's :-) https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/1a/10...
  17. Your welcome and and always glad to see this old dolls saved for the next generation :-)

  23. Mohair styles very nicely but you will lose some hair while doing it so make it a one time shot and then put a hairnet on her I do use a damp hand when doing hair to give it a bit of moisture and do ...
  24. I would treasure her :-)
  25. Thank you for posting more photo's . She is a Jumeau head but here is her story . Jumeau sold dolls to other companies and would remove their red stamp or put X more or less not wanting the company it...
  26. She is Margaret Rose I believe . How tall is she ? I don't think those are her original clothes . And MA always had a tag in her clothes . These look to big and not right quality . Very pretty doll !
  27. We call these girls Ginny's friends they were competing against her by several companies . They were all lower quality dolls and yours with the molded t strap shoe appears to be one made by Virga . T...
  28. I believe she is a girl it was quite common to dress then in sailor suits . Very nice find and glad you saved her from being thrown out because of missing arms and a leg . Has Charm
  29. Very little value The Japanese dolls have damage to faces they look like are sawdust in composition, covered with crushed oyster shell called gofun. They both have inset glass eyes. I believe they ...
  30. Hi no, none have any real value . The 2nd doll is a Nancy Ann storybook doll and these were collectible at one time but the market just became flooded with them so they also lost value . The more cont...

  38. Beautiful !! can you please post the markings on her ? You can make part 2 of listing with new post or edit and replace one of the ones posted with photo of marking . Can you tell me is she wearing a...
  39. They all appear to be made around 1940's But the photo's are not good enough to see their faces and their eyes which helps date them. They are all composition dolls . If yo want to photo them sitting ...
  40. What a voice and oh those dreamy eyes :-) So sad
  41. Japanese and called dragonware :-) Very nice
  42. You still wear one ? I am RN and was a para-medic and never wore one . They can scratch patients . In early years we often wore on nurses caps .
  43. That's a real beauty ! Love it
  44. Looks like someone painted the wings and maybe not factory painted . I have seen rhinestone pins like this with solid wings . It was not worn I doubt by a medical person to decorative so more like a p...
  45. Wow great signs !
  46. You can see dress better in person and a refurbished old gown would make sense . She has a hint of a Shirley Temple look so I am leaning toward a Ideal doll but she would be marked on neck if she is ....
