Lyda Salmonowa, Ballerina

I love to look at old photos, and it seems they're always reminding me of boudoir dolls. This postcard of Lyda Salmonowa instantly made me think of a wax half doll I have. So, here they are together.


  1. This ballerina half doll looks so elegant and dainty. What are her legs made out of? Are her stockings made from metallic thread?

  2. Her legs are wax covered with metallic lace and thread.

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.........
