Sweet old photos

I just love old photos of little girls and their dolls. Sad to think that in this age of digital photographs, most people don't keep hard copies any more. Nothing for those collectors of the future to find! The photos I most like to find are ones that have the subjects identified. This one came to me in a lot with several pages of the child's baby book, letters and even her baby booties. Her name is Elaine Dee Wolf and the photo was taken in 1904. She holds a fabulous cloth doll.




This vintage photo is unidentified. Anybody recognize the doll?

Uneeda Pink Haired Ballerina doll

Going through my files today I found these pictures - I had this doll a long time ago but for some reason never did anything with the pictures. If I recall correctly, she has the same head as Uneeda's 19" Dollikin, marked 2S, but she does not have the extra joints that Dollikin has, and her body is lighter weight than their other 2S glamour dolls. She has striking blue eyes and pale pink hair in a cute bubble cut. I believe her pink vinyl shoes are like the flats that Mommy Dollikin and the Dollikin Ballerinas wear. Does anyone have one of these pink haired dolls?

VDC blog will be moving!

I just want to give a heads up to you, dear readers, that the Vintage Doll Collector blog will be merging with the VDC website. I'm not sure why I have had them separate all this time! Since my tech skills are rather primitive, it won't happen overnight, but eventually the blog will actually be the home page of the website at www.vintagedollcollector.com, and all new content will appear there. I will be switching to Wordpress at that time as well. Thanks for your support and happy dolling!
