Some Composition Dolls have a unique appeal!
If this collection of Composition Dolls had been separated the unique appeal of their existance would have been greatly diminished. Small eight inch tall all composition unmarked dime store type dolls...they were painstakingly attired by one very meticulous lady during the 1930's and early 1940's. The first photo is the "before" image that you will need to keep in mind as you view the results of many hours of love and labor.
eBay has a rather large set of listings of vintage Composition dolls for sale, if you are interested in a purchase, or to find values, click here----(if looking for values, it is necessary to register with eBay).
Clothing was not the only detail that was articulate. Since the dolls had only molded, painted hair, the creation of many types of "wigs" presented a challenge that has been well met. Yarn, mohair and human hair prevail ......their style is complimentary to each individual costume. Visons of the creator sweeping up hair in a barber shop to salvage the proper lengths required for her dolls is not beyond reality.
Also, if you have a doll or doll accessories you would like to find out about...eBay is the place to start... in the Dolls and Bears Category, just type in what you have in the search window just under "Dolls & Bears" on the left, and "Shazam", there appears a list of present, up for auction items--in the "Display" box on the left select "Completed Items", a new list will appear, displaying completed items going back for 30 days.
