An 8 pack of dolls
the doll from the basement
In the course of cleaning out our basement so we can retrofit it for earthquake protection, we found an 8-pack of dolls.
Our basement is full of things that long- or short-term housemates have left there. I think the dolls were probably picked up somewhere by a friend who has since passed on. He was a great costumer and probably intended to re-costume them.
The doll is 17" high, with a porcelain head and feet and a stuffed body, wearing a cherry red flannel outfit and bonnet trimmed with lace. Instead of hands, she has a muff, but the dress has snaps so it can be removed.
There are no numbers or labels on either the doll or the boxes. I think they were probably mass produced in Asia sometime before the sixties.
I would appreciate any help in identifying them, and advice on finding someone who has a use for them.
