French Rosalinde

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."

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.........
