Where Are They Now? Dean's Rag Book Smart Set

This is a rare Dean's Rag Book "Smart Set" doll, made around 1927. When I owned her, she was all original, down to her boots, which were more like knee high black leather/leatherette spats over her molded shoes. If I remember correctly, the leopard print trim was made of corduroy and the rest of her outfit was felt. Fantastic doll!

  2. Hi there, she is lovely! I have a very similar doll, right down to the colour of clothing, that I recently acquired from Ebay. Mine however is carrying a tennis racket. I'd love to send a picture somehow as I'd be interested to know if they are related from the same maker and year. I don't have any information about mine as she is not tagged (that I can see) and the person who auctioned her also had no idea.
    I really love reading your blog, so much amazing information, movie clips, and pictures!
    Warmly,
    Alexandra

  3. I saw that doll on eBay too. She is the same type of doll, and is probably part of the Smart Set of dolls that Deans Rag Book made. I think I have a scan taken from Pollock's Dictionary of English Dolls that I will post. If you want to send me a photo of your doll to post on this blog, email it to linda@boudoirartdolls.com
