Blogs from My Web Site - Boudoir Dolls - Always in Vogue

Another thing I like to do is find photos of people that either look like or are dressed like boudoir dolls. Actually, it's the other way around, isn't it? The dolls are mimicking the real people of that era. That is why I am adamant about keeping these old dolls as original as possible. But, that subject will be addressed in a future posting.

Here is a doll I own that has composition head and hands, and the rest of her is cloth. She is wearing her original outfit, very much the Flapper, and a style not commonly seen on other dolls. I mostly find the dolls wearing full-skirted gowns or party dresses. A fellow collector told me she believes this doll was made by WKS/Keeneye. I haven't checked to see if she's marked underneath her clothing. I don't want to risk tearing her outfit.

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.








Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
