Nazimova

This French smoker boudoir doll is believed to be Nazimova. She appears in the Stephanie Farago book, "The Magic & Romance of Art Dolls." She is all cloth except for her hands. The book states her hands are celluloid, but they look to be composition. In the book, too, she is missing her cigarette [must have been a non-smoking building ;)]. So, I replaced her lost cigarette.

This doll can also be seen in an article I wrote in 2009 for Doll Collector Magazine.



Scene from "Camille" - 1921 - Nazimova and Rudolph Valentino!

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.........
