Got this doll on Ebay a few years ago. She came as is, in the photos, in her undies which appear to be Victorian.


She stands about 20 inches tall. Who is she? She was made in 1958, patent pending, etc.,

Is she Queen Elizabeth II? Queen Mary of Tuck? I want to make her a gorgeous ensemble fit for a queen, but which one. It's Doll #1 and I'm the second owner according to the person selling it. HELP!

Memories

As a little girl growing up in Boerne Texas I spent many afternoon sitting beside Mrs Schultze as she made her dolls. Her husband made ceramics and they were both very talented. I was fortunate enough to be given a doll and a ceramic piece. She won Ethel national doll making award with her Betsy Ross award. Many years later I learned she was at the Nimitz museum in Fredericksburg Texas. I went to visit her however was very disappointed she did not remember me or the hours we spent together. In the front room of their home was a true museum of all the dolls she had made along with the clothing with tiny buttons, pockets etc. what a talented couple.

Quuen Mother?
by: Anonymous

I think she is a Royal, perhaps the Queen Mother? She could be a portrait of Maime E., first lady, dolled up for a formal dance, non pun intended. Check out books on N.I.A.D.A artists, in particular Fawn Zellar. Check out Helen Young's The Complete Book of Doll Collecting, 1967 for a chapter on The National Institute of American Doll Artists, N.I.A.Da.
