Vintage Artist Parian Lady

21"
High Quality Craftsmanship

$395.
The artist who crafted this parian lady with molded black hair was truly gifted, as until you see the signature on the back of the shoulders (Claremaid  1963), you will be studying her, wondering which antique doll firm may have made her.  Untinted white parian bisque on her face and shoulders with blue painted eyes, soft shading and impeccable artistry make way to notice her pierced ears and her intricate hairdo with a row of black ringlet curls on her forehead to a high up-do in the back and a molded violet hairband with gold accents.  She has a cloth body with posed parian hands and molded shoes that are boots with laces.  Clothing is of antique lace, cotton and silk ribbon.

Madame Alexander "Cissy"

20"
In Her Theatre Outfit

ON LAYAWAY
Who can resist these super stylish, important vintage fashion dolls named Cissy?  Made by Madame Alexander in 1955, this doll has such a presence not only due to her statuesque 20" height, but from an inherent aesthetic style and confident attitude that she possesses.
She is truly high fashion in her original vibrant blue satin theater dress with coordinating ice colored wide coat, with a versatile scarf that can be worn many ways.  Being mostly an antique doll person myself, I may have modeled her in unorthodox vintage ways, but it is just that to me, she is a true evolving fashion doll representing couture history.
She has blue sleep eyes, a honey blond hair color in original style, her hard plastic head, torso and jointed knee legs are all in good condition, as are her vinyl, elbow jointed arms.  There is not foul odor to report, her dress has the original manufacturer's label and I separately found her Cissy shoes to add to her costume.

Little Henry Paper Doll
ca. 1810
with Book and Sleeve
$775.
Incredibly charming, seldom seen collection of paper dolls from the Little Henry and Little Fanny series of 1810, where there is a story about the character told in a bound book of separate poems enclosed in original sleeve (overall wear to book cover and sleeve due to age, but paper dolls excellent).  Rare and vibrant, hand water-colored outfits.
  For each poem that marks an event or era in Little Henry's life, there is a corresponding paper outfit that can be mounted beneath the doll's paper head, making each story come to life!  The rare and precious piece is complete except for one outfit at the end of the story and the sleeve has considerable ink staining on the outside front sleeve, some on the back.  Sleeve measures 5" X 4".

Door of Hope Mission
Bride and Groom

$2750.
  A lovely pair of Door Hope dolls from the Shanghai mission of the early 1900's, this bride and groom are in original condition with some fading of the gentleman's under tunic which can be seen only when lifting his long jacket.  Both dolls retain their head dresses, with that of the bride being quite spectacular in its colorful pom-pom height.  She has a detailed carved bun on the back of her head, and an ornate silk costume with hand-sewn bead adornments and embroidery.  The groom is 11 1/2" tall while the bride is 11" and both dolls have nicely carved, wooden heads and hands.

Bubble Cut Barbie in Orig. Box

11"
with Vintage, Custom Knitted, 20-Outfit Wardrobe!

A 1962 Bubble Cut Barbie that is really all about her clothes!  Back in her day, her owner knitted for her an abundant array of ensembles and coordinates, from bathing suits, beach attire, work and play attire, party dresses, skating costumes,  smart travel outfits, and even a floor length garment.
   
She is shown here modeling some of her collection, and all of it in its entirety can be seen in the group photos.  The doll itself is in fair condition with some green staining around her right ear, and both legs have taken on a slightly moist or sticky quality.  She still has her original box in great condition and black plastic slip-on shoes.
