Composition Doll Ethnic Beautiful Roddy
Offering this lovely vintage doll; stuffed body with composition type arms and legs; head is very light weight, could be celluloid or hard plastic. Beautiful painted facial features, weighted blue glass sleep eyes, blonde mohair wig. She is dressed in a red striped blouse with an over vest in red, floral, and blue. Skirt is black wool felt with red trim. Apron is navy linen with red check homespun top; lovely embroidered ribbon waist tie. She is also wearing a bonnet that matches the floral on her vest. She stands 11 3/4 inches tall, no markings, I have been told that she is an older Roddy (England) doll, though I cannot confirm this. Good++ condition, clean, no holes or cracks, no stains or holes on clothing. Someone painted her black from the knees including her feet. Not sure if this is original. She does have one small chip on her left toe. Not a real detraction, especially if you added shoes. Fingers are all there, no damage; circa is most likely 1940-50's. A lovely doll for your collection!
