Vogue Toddles Hansel Composition
Here is another beautiful doll from Nancys Dolls & Antiques. This is called a Toddles and was made by the Vogue Doll Co in the 1940s and was the precursor to the later Ginny doll of the 1950s also made by Vogue. This one is all composition on a 5 pc jointed , strung body. This doll is called Hansel. He has side painted eyes and eyelashes and soft red lips with brown eyebrows. His left eye has a scratch and one by his nose. His face paint is very good with light pink cheeks also. There is a lifting of the composition on his left side seam by his left ear and he has blonde hair which is mohair and nice, a little thinner in back and in a boy style. The rest of his composition is nice. He is marked Doll Co. on his back and you can barely see the V for Vogue on his neck. He is wearing his original red felt shorts with attached white top with blue felt straps. There is yellow ric rac trim. The outfit ties in back with the early very thin ties. He has on a different but original Ginny hat that matches in coloration very well but I think it went to an early skating outfit. And lastly he has on the original red oilcloth center snap shoes, both with perfect snaps, one missing a sole, and his white rayon socks. The stringing is fine and he can stand on his own. There are no stains or odors either. The Toddles dolls rarely come in this great condition with all of the pieces of the outfit in such nice shape. Look for my other Toddles dolls in a separate sale, Binky, Bunky and Little Red Riding Hood.
