Yesterday I was lucky enough to find this whole box of assorted dolls for just a couple of pounds. I had spied a few interesting looking dollies amongst the bags of mainly 50s and 60s costume dolls.
The felt faced costume dolls are quite sweet with lovely painted faces.
This has to be the best find in the bottom of the box, an original Norah Wellings sailor doll with label stitched to his foot. His face is a little damaged but generally he is in excellent condition.
These are a cute pair of vintage pipe cleaner dolls.
This little lady I am guessing was perhaps to be used to stitch to a skirt for a nightdress case or similar. I really don't know though so any suggestions would be welcome.
This is a rather elegant moulded head I guess from the 1920s. Inside it is stamped 'Made In France' so I am guessing it was perhaps intended for a French boudoir doll.
My lovely girl took a few arty close ups for me.
Mr C and I also found this old wooden and brass till. Inside there is writing in the lid from various shop staff including a heart dated Valentines Day 1947 and some names. It has the loveliest 'ding' when you pull the drawer open. This is destined for the door at the Northampton Vintage Fair.
Finally as requested following my previous post here is another picture of my newly painted cupboard , full once again of my vintage books.
