I received an email from the Educator of the Columbus County Historical Society, inquiring about this 33" cloth boudoir doll. I believe this doll is French - at least, the head looks French. The clothing, although vintage, may not be original to the doll. Thanks for allowing me to blog this doll.
This French Rosalinde still wears her original black paint-on-silk costume with gold metallic lace. I always had the impression that the flat-chested Rosalindes were the only ones with cloth hands, but this doll with her bead-nippled breasts proves me wrong! She has cloth hands. Her silk floss hair has a single ringlet to the side. She is missing her pearl necklace that is characteristic of these dolls. She also is missing the suede soles of her slippers. In fact, her slippers appear to be replacements. Normally, Rosalindes have a suede-soled cloth shoe, marked "Rosalinde."
This is an interesting half doll. She has an Asian appearance to her. She is marked at the bottom "Biskeloid" and what appears to be "Made in Holland." On her back, the markings look like "The Roman Chariot".
This is a very unusual all composition Cubeb. Normally, these dolls have cigarettes or look like they're kissing or pouty, but this one has teeth! I'd love to find one like that! Another thing I've never seen is a stand. Perhaps, this was specially made for the film, but I wonder. The stand base reads "I'm Yours Forever."
The film "Warming Up" stars Jean Arthur and Richard Dix and is dated 1928.
