Cubebs - All Composition Smokers

Not sure how these dolls ended up being called "Cubebs" by collectors because I have yet to have found these dolls being used as advertisement for Cubeb cigarettes, but supposedly, these dolls were used to promote that brand of cigarettes to Flappers. If anyone has an ad, I'd appreciate an email.

However, I have seen these dolls referred to as "La Parisienne" "Charleston Girl" "Silk Pajama Girl" and "Boudoir Doll" in advertisements.

As you can see by these photos, these dolls had different head molds. They also had different arm and feet molds. I'm sure there were other differences, depending on the maker.

I just listed a Cubeb for sale in my shop. Click the photo, below, to view:

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.........
