Ideal Betsy McCall in Hard to Find Outfit

Ideal Betsy McCall doll wearing her hard-to-find original dress made to resemble the “Betsy McCall Saves For a Bond” paper doll in McCall’s magazine in 1953. Betsy was the first vinyl head doll made by Ideal. She is 14 inches tall with a hard plastic body, jointed at the neck, shoulders and hips. One of her brown sleep eyes is stuck open and the other is slightly cockeyed. She has all her lashes. Her face is a little sticky (common with these dolls) and her hair is a bit straggly, and the remnants of an old rubber band are on the ponytail. Her hair may have been trimmed. Her green woven plaid dress has a knit collar and knit pocket edgings. It is in very good condition. The dress has an attached slip and she wears her matching panties as well. Her diamond pattern stockings and black shoes are vintage but newer. She has a slightly musty odor and could use a light cleaning. A sweet vintage Betsy in a great outfit!

Beautiful Vintage Composition Bride Doll

Lovely all-composition doll, probably from the early 1940s, wearing her original taffeta bridal gown with attached slip and panty, and net veil. She has one shoe and sock but managed to lose the other one, probably rushing to get to the church on time. You can’t tell unless you peek under the dress. She has a beautiful auburn mohair wig with felt flowers on either side. She is unmarked. The doll is in very good condition with no damage to the compo. There is a strange square hole in her lower back, but you can tell it was molded that way, not sure why. She could use a light cleaning. The dress has some stains and there are holes in the veil. The veil is permanently attached. Her stringing is good but one arm wants to stay up all the time. A sweet little vintage lady!
