Since the Beginning

These three dolls have been in my collection since I started collecting. I love her purple velvet jacket and matching cloche hat. She is what collectors call a "Big Face" because her head is larger than the usual composition-head dolls (larger than the doll, below). She is also longer, measuring 34". The doll, below, is a smoker. Her head is smaller in size, and she measures 28". Collectors refer to these dolls as "Anita" or "Anita-type," named after a doll company "Anita Doll Company" that made dolls like these.
The other doll, below, is made of felt, Italian, by the maker, Lenci. She is referred to as a Fadette. She was the very first Lenci I bought. Fadettes are my very favorite boudoir dolls.

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.........
