My Grandma loved these dolls... I never did particularly, not then (60's), but that's all changed. She looks like Snow White, with all of the lillte cupie's gathering around on my mantle shelf. Prince Charming would love a peek at those sexy legs.
They're almost Manganese. Manga-esque. Nice.
They wanted $10 for it and I really couldn't afford it but there you go. The nice lady threw in two Mills and Boons and two worthy books for free. Bonus!

I had to. Pretty soon you won't ever see things like this. The guy I bought it off suggested I could sand it back and paint it. Yeah right! And ruin the gorgeous patina of age and neglect? I don't think so. There is wire down the legs through the reels.

Old blue eyes has a string still attached and it's eyes (his eyes I think) open and close when you lay him down and sit him upright. Mr No Eyes actually has eyes and if you wiggle him around they'll pop into place every now and then. Spooky!
My four and a half month old grand-daughter Mercedes squeaks when you lay her back in your arms and smiles when you sit her upright in much the same way. Considers it an insult to be held like a baby.
