Dressed Alike, But One Went Shopping

This Lenci is wearing the same style outfit as a drawing from a 1923 French magazine. The hats are similar, the jackets have a waist tie and pockets. The collars and pockets are trimmed in a similar color. They even stand with their toes together ;). Was Lenci the model for this drawing or was this Lenci designed after this drawing? I don't know what year this doll was made, but it illustrates how boudoir dolls mimicked the style of the era.

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.........
