Can't get my camera to talk to my lap top -- will try to post a picture tomorrow after I figure out what's wrong.

 

I have what appears to be a marlo flip Barbie, only her hair style is a mirror image of what it should be -- the part is on the wrong side, and the spit curl is going in the wrong direction. Is this a different doll, a variation, a foreign market doll, or ????

 

As an aside, I just spent a good hour dressing this doll in the Underliners outfit, with the plan of putting her up for sale in a booth I have in an antique store. I am never, ever, ever, dressing a doll in that oufit again. I had to get my crochet hook out to get the garter straps out from under the teddy, and it took me a good half hour to inch the stockings up her legs. (For now, she's sitting on my work bench -- I didn't realize her hair style was reversed until I had her dressed and I started looking at Marlo Flips on eBay to get a sense for the current value. I won't be sending her off to sale until I get a solid ID on her!)

 

Help?

 

I will post pictures as soon as I can. She's a very pretty girl in beautiful shape. :-)

I have what I believe to be an antique French bisque doll  The only marking is on the back of her head.  She has a cloth body,soft and silky maybe linen, from where she connects to the head and shoulder down to her waist.  Its as If she were wearing thong underware The leather of her legs comes up to meet where the underware would ride.  Waist level at the waist on sides and at the back.  Bikini level in front.  My mother had this doll prior to me.  She had clothes made for it so clothes are no help in identification. The cloth body appears to be old.  The leather of the arms and legs designed to allow extra motion at the elbows, hips and knees.  Ive tried to find answers on 99.9 % of the sites on the internet.  Im sure the answer in on the .1% where I haven't looked.  She has glass eyes that are brown.  Her mouth is open and I can see 4 teeth.  Her eyelashes and eyebrows are painted on finely feathered.  Her eyelids are a bit tinted. She has a dimple in her chin.  She has a deeper crease on each side of her nose than I would expect  No blimishes that I can see.  Her cheeks have a nice blush and her lips are clearly visible.  She is starting to get a double chin.  She has a tiny red dot on the inside of the eyes as. tear ducts.  She has blond hair, unknown if real, that has been pulled thru a cloth type scalp covering.  There are two indentations going up from the front holes of the shoulderplate.  She not what I would call beautiful but is distinct.  No earings or any other embelishments.  HELP. Who is this unidentified doll

And I got busy last night. Look at her now. :-)

 

(I forgot to take a before picture, but she was Ye Usual #5 Ponytail project head -- matted hair hanging in dreds, greasy face, needed her makeup touched up.)

 

Earrings are off a Liv doll. She has just a trace of green ear but not enough that I would want to try to remove it. The Liv earrings are doll safe (chromed plastic), do not have barbs, and are just glitzy enough to draw attention away from the green ear. Otherwise, everything's vintage. (I don't think the necklace is a Mattel necklace, but it is vintage.)

 

She's off to the antique store now for resale. :-) (With full disclosure of the work done on her, because I am honest! *grin*)

Any help identifying these dolls would be much appreciated.

Dolls discussion

I recently spent about $35 for this beautiful doll -- she came in her undies, with no hair and the comment that she is vinyl and had been "played with." A damp washcloth removed all traces of dirt from her vinyl parts -- her cloth body was quite clean.  From her big toe to the top of her head she's right at 29 inches. On the back of her neck it says "Hildegard Gunzel" and "China".  Near the top of her head there's a "2" and on top of her head, in something like green oil pencil, it says "112".

 

In the original picture I saw of her she was lying on a beat-up auburn or brownish wig, presumably formerly hers.   I'd love to restore her hair and clothing at least in the spirit of who she was -- but I don't know how to find her ...  I've looked at pictures of H.G. dolls online in the last few days until I see their faces in my sleep, but if I saw her, I didn't recognize her. The closest I came was a 27 inch 1990 special edition Samantha -- there is a resemblance, but the eyelashes are different. Does anyone know who she is, or can you give me some pointers on how to find out?

 

Thanks,

rachel

This isn't mine, but I got one that looks just like her the last time I went out looking.  Was hoping someone could tell me who she is, since her face is pretty distinctive and she's 12 inches tall and not 10 like the Blocks, etc.
