French "Sparkle"

These French boudoir dolls have glitter on their heads and shoes. They have strung arms for posing.

  1. Love, love, love these glitter head dolls. I have only seen them online. They appear to be rather large, are they? Always wondered!

  2. Hey Linda,
    In this house, there is always one thing nobody can find, and today its the tape measure. However, I would confidently say my sparkle doll is well over three feet tall. Her legs are super long, and the upper part of them, to the undefined 'knee' is the only cloth part of her. The rest is a bisque? She's fragile, so I don't move her around much, and her face is just lovely. Other than her orange silk pants, she has a silk velvet lounge jacket, made from an old dress, and an Egyptian Revival necklace on, with a topaz colored stone. She's been a favorite for a few years now.
    Thanks!
    Jenny

  3. Thanks for the info. I remember these dolls being a really nice size. I believe the one you have is marked "Made in France" along the lower back, where the bisque (or whatever)ends and the cloth begins. I haven't learned yet how to identify some of these materials. It could be composition, whatever.

    I will post more photos of these dolls.

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.........
