This one is 6" tall, all bisque, with movable arms. Known as a three-piece.
After restoration, and a new crocheted dress, she was ready to be named, "Felicia".
This one suffered some damage, and was given different arms along the way.
This doll, measures 7" and, is also a three piece, bisque. After restoration, I made her a new crocheted dress, with a matching green collar and red bow. She is called "Ginger".
This one is 8 1/2" tall. She is in really good condition. She just needed a warm bath.
I decided to call this one"Blondie", after my mother-in-law.
I have attempted some research into when and where these dolls were created, and by who. It seems they have many names, Google-eyes, Carnival Dolls, Cupids, Flappers, etc. One thing I find, is that they are adorable little dolls.
The two top dolls, are marked Japan. The little blond is unmarked. They could date from 1920-1950.
I hope you enjoyed the "before and after" photos of these little cuties.
