FOR SALE - STUDIO DOLL

SOLD

For those who haven't followed my blog over on 'Rose Cottage Friends'




As I have mentioned before I am selling my gorgeous Sasha Studio Doll.  I have been told that she is quite an early doll dating from 1946 - 1952 in part because she has realistically molded ears and other characteristics.  She is a BIII Studio doll, type 3 head, type B Body.   She has a beautiful wistful pensive face and expression.  Her hair is human hair, but I don't know if it is original to her or not, I suspect it is probably is.  It is believed that her underwear and dress is original but her extra clothes were probably added later.  The cape may also have been original?

She is by no means perfect, so if you are looking for a 'perfect' studio doll then she is not for you.  She has 'history' to her and there are several theories as to what this is.  Please contact me via email if interested.  I am currently working out a ball park region for what I would like for her, but don't feel frightened to offer a realistic price.  I can either say 'yes, no, or let's negotiate'.  I have not followed the trends of what these dolls are worth since I bought her in 2015, but I would like to at least cover the cost of her purchase.



I have included lots of photos below so you can assess whether you are seriously interested or not and I have more photos available.







Original white felt arm holes.

































She was 'formally' introduced on this blog post here: Introducing Ingrid.

New Year New Blog!

A New Year and changes!

I have decided to amalgamate just my two main blogs for now 'Sewing for Sasha' and this one 'How Many Dolls' into one.  I will eventually be taking these two blogs 'off line' but will at that stage copy all the old posts from both blogs onto the new one. Whether the other two doll blogs 'Holidays with Henry' and 'Hitty at Rose Cottage' eventually merge with the new blog as well, is yet to be decided.


So please do make sure you update your reading list and 'follow' me using the appropriate buttons over on my new blog which is called 'Rose Cottage Friends'  and can be found by clicking here



I want this new blog to be primarily my story blog so even though I said 'just one blog' I will be putting all my sewing and knitting posts onto my 'Muriel Makes' blog which will also link to my Etsy page.  My Muriel Makes blog can be found by clicking here.
