I'm on Instagram

I thought I'd try Instagram. Nothing posted yet. I am thinking about using it to show new items I have for sale at the McKenzie Antique Mall in Tennessee. Anyway, thought I'd mention it even though most of you live elsewhere. I may expand its use once I understand what it's all about.

I might be able to put some boudoir doll photos and related items on there, too. We'll see. Here's the link:

Film - Warming Up - 1928

1928 Film "Warming Up" Richard Dix, Jean Arthur
I've blogged about this photo before, but I found the movie overture, below, on YouTube.

Notice, that this "Cubeb" is not the smoker or the "kissing" type. I wonder if the crew, handling the props, painted this or if this version existed. So far, I have not seen one like this.

All Composition Boudoir Doll Smoker

According to ads I've seen, these dolls were called, "Charleston Girl" by Manhattan Novelty and Gift Company or "The Parisienne" by Konroe Merchants or "Felt Doll M617" by Kindel and Graham. Collectors refer to these smokers as "Cubeb."

Blossom Boudoir Doll - 1936

Keeneye Seversky Pilot

This is a very unusual and rare boudoir doll. Not sure how it was determined that it represents Jacqueline Cochran, however, the doll's flight suit does represent Seversky, Aviation Pioneer and Inventor. Click on the photo to view eBay auction. Below, are two Wikipedia links for Alexander Seversky and Jacqueline Cochran.
