VINTAGE DOLLS and RELATED ITEMS!

 

VOGUE GINNY DOLL HARD PLASTIC PAINTED LASHES, STRUNG  ~ 

This is a
great painted lash, strung, early Vogue Ginny doll. She is all originally dressed and dress is tagged.  She is wearing "Party #74 from the Talon Zipper Series" of outfits.   It is a magneta iridescent silk taffeta with lace trim.  Undes are attached to the dress. She also has her original MINT condition center snap shoes with vintage rayon socks! She is an amazing find. 

Sometimes these early dolls have the dreaded "green eyelash/eyebrow" syndrome caused by being exposed to sunlight, but this doll does NOT have that at all!   Her lashes and brows are the original factory color.

Her dress is mint, as are her shoes.  Her wig is a little bit mussed up, but I am selling her "as is" and "as found" because I do not want to try and comb or style the wig.  I will leave that up to the professional Ginny Collector.

If you need more pictures of this doll, please let me know and I will email them to you.  However, she is as represented and in fabulous condition for a Ginny doll this age.  I would guess she is straight from the original owner.   I personally purchased her a large antique show.

PRICE: $219.99
 (packaged weight will be approximately 13 oz & can ship 1st Class Mail - insurance is optional, but suggested)

AMERICAN CHARACTER 8" BETSY MCCALL VINTAGE DOLL, MINT IN ORIGINAL BOX ~ 

Here you have a VINTAGE 1950's red-haired 8" all hard plastic American Character Betsy McCall doll AND she has her original box AND chemise! 

She really is in WONDERFUL condition with NO split crotch, which is usually found with these dolls. I would guess this doll has never been played with at all.  It would appear that the child owner removed her original basic chemise, dressed her in the Jodhpur Outfit and then didn't play with her at all.  She even has her side snap vinyl shoes with strap and button on each side.  She even has her stockings / socks!!!

She has the harder to find RED hair!!  Her sleep eyes with molded lashes are a little sticky to "sleep" when you tilt her back, but otherwise she has NO flaws at all.  NO missing fingers, no splits, no cracks, no stains. 

Again, if you need more pictures or have questions be sure to contact me.

The box is also very good with no water stains or split corners - it even has the original tissue paper from the factory!

PRICE: $274.99
 (packaged weight will be approximately 15 oz & will need to ship Priority Mail - insurance is optional, but suggested)
MATTEL STANDARD BARBIE with Bend Knees - Brunette - mid-1960's Issue ~ 

I purchased this doll from the original owner, so she has not been taken to doll shows, etc...  Right from the original owner to hopefully an appreciative collector.   I believe she is what you call the Standard Barbie, or maybe Barbie Standard.  She has a twist and turn (TNT) waist, bending knees that click and hold a pose (three times).  She has no splits or cracks anywhere.

Her hair is brunette, all there, but need a little bit re-stying. I have not done anything with it other than lightly comb it out for the photos.  No missing hair plugs.

Her facial makeup is quite bright and nice. She has all her rooted eye lash (from the Eyelash Era of Barbie Dolls - the MOD Era)... 

She will come to you wearing the one piece tagged, but only in fair condition one piece romper.  I don't think you would call it a swimsuit (??).  it was the only tagged item that I rec'd when I bought this doll. 

I am also listing a few "Mommy Made" clothes for this doll in one large lot as well as the case she was found in. 

I didn't want to include the case and clothes with this doll itself in case you only want the doll, clothes OR case, etc.

PRICE: $125.00
 (packaged weight will be approximately 13 oz & can ship 1st Class Mail - insurance is optional, but suggested)
 
THE WORLD OF BARBIE 1968 VINYL CARRYING CASE - MOD ERA - OVERALL VERY GOOD ~ 

This is the case that the Standard Barbie was in when I got her.  Overall, it is in "lightly played with" condition.

It has no split corners, no stains, the handle and latch are both good.  It is dated 1968, copyright Mattel.

PRICE: $10.00
 (packaged weight will be approximately 1# 10 oz & will ship Priority Mail - insurance is optional)
