Masked Rosalinde - RePost for Halloween



This is a French Rosalinde. She appears in the book, "Magic & Romance of Art Dolls." Because Rosalindes' costumes were made of silk, it is very rare to find them in their original costumes. As is the case with this particular one, her silk costume is gone. It used to be a shocking pink (you can see bits of it in her closeup). However, the lace armlets, silk velvet headdress, with the attached faux pearls, underskirts, stockings, as well as a chamois sole of her silk shoes are all that remains.

  1. Thanks! I can only imagine how stunning she must have been when she wore her shocking pink gown. I'll post more photos of her.

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.........
