I added another vintage 1920's / 30's boudoir doll torso to the collection this month, one with a particularly fresh face, rosy cheeked smile, and highlighted by a lovely, flowery bronze head wrap over her raven black hair. She might be in the best condition of the four I now possess, and yes, at some point these antique dolls (well, 3 of them) will need bodies and clothing, and of course to be displayed properly, --though not as lamps or pin cushions, I promise! --most likely alongside their full-sized mannequin sisters haunting the various other regions of my house...
I like her Egyptian-looking eyeliner. And her cool mesh headband.
Since I can`t travel back through time to date Mabel Normand, I'll just gaze upon this beauty.
20/30s? You find some stuff in surprisingly great condition! I'm with Mr. Cavin, I love the Egyptian look, and I suspect that pins the time at the late 20s when that might have been the rage (Tuts tomb was found in 22.)
wow - she's beautiful!
That side eye glance seems to be saying 'I know something you don't know'
The doll is the perfect modern-day sphinx, she keeps her secrets well.
