French "Sparkle" Boudoir Doll

Although, a previous owner caused damage, when attempting to clean this doll, Sue's French boudoir doll still "sparkles." Sue thinks someone used water on her. DO NOT USE WATER to clean these dolls!

I refer to these French dolls as "Sparkle" because their molded hair and shoes have glitter on them. See my previous posts on these dolls:

These particular French dolls are composition or other type plaster except for the lower body and upper legs. The arms are strung.

Notice how cleaning this doll caused damage to the top layer and the face paint.


The shoes look like the standard type French dolls, however, you can see remnants of the layer of sparkle that used to cover the shoe.

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.........
