This is a press photo 1920 of a "Miss Broadway Personality Doll." There's no other info, but she sort of reminds me of a Flower Fairy or the type of wooden headed doll that I've seen on novelty items such as bags/purses. Wish I had more info.

What a fabulous eBay find! Here is a 1927 news photo of a French Rosalinde boudoir doll with the following description -
"Exquisitely Gowned Dolls Latest Fad Adopted by Society at Palm Beach"
"PALM BEACH, FLA - The exclusive novelty shops are displaying dolls garbed in the most elaborate and gorgeous costumes-- dolls which delight and thrill the hearts of sub-debs, debbies and their doting mamas. Costly fabrics and expert workmanship is incorporated in their making."
"PHOTO SHOWS- A doll typifying the days of Queen Marie Antoinette"
