Here's my first doll....It's a Raving Beauty Blonde made in Pasadena, my hometown by Artisan Doll Co early 1950's.  I fell in love because of her short blonde curly hair and the fact that I found her in a thrift shop not a mile for the original site for Artisan!

A soft sculpture doll given to me by my German friend. She created and sold dolls like these during the war to buy bread to feed her family. I adored the lady, and the magic hands behind this treasure. Her face has a run because my cat got her one day.

What a wonderful idea! I've often wished I could see more of everyone's doll collection.


 


Susie, I would have loved to see a larger close-up of Sue's prom dress. It looks wonderful.

This is an Arranbee Nancy Lee I got on Ebay *cheap* thanks to a friend who gave me a heads-up..



Her body and face were in great shape, but I replaced her wig, got her an eye transplant, and made her a dress from vintage fabrics:





A positive attitude may not solve all your problems,

but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Great dolls, all.  Acceptance, your soft sculpture doll is precious, and I know how special she must be to you.

This is a Schoenhut 16/301.  It's the same mold that graces the cover of Corson's Book on Schoenhut dolls. 


 


I bought her right here on Ebay a while back.   She is all original and is wearing a beautiful but delicate tissue weight cotton dress that her "mommy" made for her and still has her original union suit, shoes, and metal stand.   This mold was produced from 1911 right through 1924 when they stopped producing the spring jointed dolls.  Obviously she was popular to have been part of production for all the years that these dolls were made.


 


The Graziano 301 is a completely different looking doll.  My doll has the same face as the Transition 102 doll who is a carved hair doll with braids (bow in back).  Depending on how they are painted they can look very different from one another.  That makes it fun when collecting.  I personally prefer the ones with mohair wigs because the mohair that the company used is the softest I have ever touched. 


 


She is able to be posed in many different positions making it fun to display her throughout the year. 


 


I love her. :-x

My childhood Barbie doll from 1962. Her face is pink because I thought my mother's lipstick would look great on her. LOL!

Sundayvisit, I forgot to answer your question in my last post. Yes, Emmaline's eyes are painted ever so slightly looking to the right.
