One of our readers, Madeline, recently rescued an old doll her Dad found and of course, we all want to see the pictures. As you can see from the first pictures, she is a little scary now but Madeline is going to try to fix her with her Dad’s help.
Here is a little about the doll in Madeline’s words:
Yesterday me and my mom were looking online to find out what kind of doll she is, she did not come up but based on the dolls we saw she is probably from the 1940’s or 50’s. She belonged to an older woman who collected dolls but when she died and her children came and got all her stuff, they apparently left this doll. My dad found her and showed her to me and hopefully we can fix her again. I don’t know why she has holes in her stomach, she wasn’t a speaking doll or anything. At least, she has no batteries. I am thinking about naming her Maggie, but I am still looking for suggestions.
Hello Again! It is Madeline. A little after I sent you the doll pictures, my mom did a little investigating and found the doll she was. Here is the link to a photo album of some of them. She is an Original Susan Strollers Doll by “Eegee” and she was supposed to walk, crawl, cry and things like that. I didn’t think the holes were for talking but I guess they really are! They don’t have any markings or things on their actual bodies, they came with tags that apparently came with hair curlers on them. The main thing you can identify them by is their holes in their stomachs.
Here are a few photos Madeline found when doing the research to identify her doll:
Thanks again Madeline for sharing these with us!! Please send in more pictures once you have her all cleaned up!
