It's time for Pink Saturday and another doll post.
You knew that, right?
This is my fifth doll in 2012 and the best one yet!
I discovered her in an antique store downtown. (Salmugundi West at 321 W Cordova Street)
My two friends and I were on a shopping excursion on Wednesday and we went downstairs in a creepy creaking basement where there were quite a few dolls. We were in a hurry so we didn't ask the shop lady to open the glass cabinet where this doll was, so I went back on Thursday to look at her, and as soon as I picked her up, I knew she wanted to come home with me.
I went and had a cup of coffee at Waves coffee house, while thinking about it, then went back and bought her. She is an Armand Marseille and she is my very first antique doll.
She has the shoulder plate and is marked "Germany 370" on it.
She has a leather kid body, stuffed with sawdust, and all her fingers are intact.
She may have replaced feet. I need to take a photo of her naked.
I'm very excited to have one antique doll in my collection!
I found this on my ramblings online.
Isn't she cute?
Have a wonderful pink day. I meant to post more about Spring, which seems to have sprung here, but I've run out of time!
