Please, I need to know what my doll is and what circa she came from! Thank you
I have a similar doll, but there is a great distinction! I had gotten this doll when my grandmother passed away, but my uncle got it for her, so I have no idea where she came from!
She has a voice box like yours, but there's also one on the lower back too! The voice boxes look as though they are made out of metal? She has a wooden/cardboard head because she's cracked quite badly on the right side of her head and I see wood with plaster covering it!
She's plastic on the outside of her head along with her arms and legs, hands and feet, but everything else is stuffing of an old brown color and the stuffing is at the neck, lower arms and lower legs. The voice boxes are underneath this material.
Her hair is painted on and it's cracking, but I can tell that it is brown hair. She has green eyes, though the right eye is a bit caked with something and her cheeks and knees are a pink rosy color. I don't see any markings on her at all and I've looked everywhere!
She has sleepy eyes when I tilt her and they even make a squeaking noise. She has 2 teeth and a felt tongue that I can see and her teeth move when you touch them, even though I don't try that anymore because she has become quite special to me! I even named her Caroline!
Even with all of her cracks, she is really something special to myself! I don't want to get rid of her as I have bought her new clothes. It's like my child. I know it sounds crazy, but I don't have any children and she is just like one to me!
She is what made me interested in other Vintage dolls as well.
If anyone could help me identify what kind of doll she is, I would truly appreciate that so much because as I stated earlier, she has become very special to me! Thank you so much for any information and I will try to post pictures as soon as possible! Thank you and warm regards, Jessica
