Celebrity?

This looks like a celebrity doll. They used to make these kinds of wax figures, usually dressed in costume of the film stars. If anyone knows for sure and knows who this is, please let me know.

Smoking Chimneys - Boudoir Doll Smoker Song Cover Photo

A couple of years ago, I received an email from one of the Smoking Chimneys, asking if he could use a photo I took of a smoking boudoir doll I once owned. Of course, I said okay! Anyway, I thought I'd share this two years later.....

Clothes Make a Difference

I got this composition/cloth boudoir doll today. She's in great shape! But, her outfit does not flatter her at all.
I turned up the brim of her hat. That made such a difference. The hat still has the store tag in it (see photo, below). Click on the photo of the store tag, below, to view Wikipedia information about Joseph Horne Co. 
I tied up her crocheted collar, and then, after much consideration, I removed her skirt. It is lined and the material is heavy so it weighed her down quite a bit. It also was not sewn on her very nicely and has a bulky zipper. 


She actually looks better without the skirt. I'll have to find an appropriate costume for her that matches her original hat. 

There is a web site called "The Department Store Museum." Click on the name to view the link to their web site.

This is how I received the doll. As you can see, her outfit doesn't flatter her at all.
