Marquis & Marquise

These French made dolls have chamois faces and elaborate hand-made costumes (the female's costume has since been replaced). The male is about 40" tall, and the female is about 36". A metal tag was found in her shoe that reads, SG BAIONETTE DG. I believe these dolls are one of the earlier boudoirs, made around WWI/early 1920s. Gorgeous dolls!

  3. Thank you for the information! I passed the information on to the owner. I do not believe the dolls are button jointed.

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.........
