Vintage Doll?

Chell1119July 29, 2012

Hello I have a doll that looks vintage but I am not sure. The clothes look handmade. There is no markings that I can see and the clothes are so tight that I cant take them off with out damaging them. She is made of plastic and her eyes close when you lay her down. I found out that they began making plastic dolls in the 40's. Is anyone familiar with this doll?

The dress looks a lot older than the doll. They didn't have plastic dolls in the 40's.
Looks to me like someone took an old dress and sewed it onto a newer doll.

Thank you both so much for your help. I did look it up on the internet about when they began making plastic dolls and it said sometime in the 40's but the pics I saw didnt look like her. I do agree that the dress is probably older. This is my moms doll and I am not sure where she got it. I wonder if someone made this dress for this doll because it is not easily taken off. I never tried because it is so tight. Thanks again for the comments! :).

Well, I was 4 in 1940.....and all my dolls were made in the 40's and I never had a plastic one. They were rubber, composition or porcelain.
