Travelling Dolls

Back in the days when airlines had fewer luggage restrictions, one could travel with a decent wardrobe – like the dolls here are about to do. A TONI Revlon doll and her daughter are shown, with all their cases ready to go. From the left:

A TONI doll, from the late 1950’s, dressed in a hand made vintage outfit comprising a handmade, red, woolen coat over a black felt top and full circle skirt. She carries a wonderful black velvet clasp handbag, which opens and closes. Prices: £30.00 for the doll with shoes and panties only; £30.00 for her three piece outfit; or £10.00 for her handbag.

PLAID CASE, with long black straps and base, made from plastic. It was designed for the Ginny doll, and matches the hanging wardrobe on the far right side of the rack. Price: £10.00 for this case.

CARDBOARD CASE, with period-correct stamps from favourite destination and a black leatherette handle. This case is a little battered, hence the price of £7.50.

TAN LEATHER CASE, an amazing piece, originally given to First Class fliers on TWA airline. Made of leather with yellow stitching and complete with a TWA tag, it is a remarkable little suitcase, a rarity, but not in pristine condition as the photos show. Price: £40.00

RED FELT PURSE, matches the little girl’s cape, and fastens with a glass bead button. Price: £5.00

PLAID HANGING WARDROBE, trimmed in black and with working, brass zip, designed to hold lots of doll clothes. Stamped “Ginny’s Garment Bag”, and made from plastic, it was indeed made for mid-century Ginny dolls. Price: £15.00

MADAME ALEXANDER DOLL, dating from the mid-century era, with her sweet but pouty face. She is dressed in a plaid skirt, white blouse and red felt cape; on her feet ruffled, white socks and black patent leather shoes. Price: £30.00 for the doll with panties and more prosaic shoes; £25.00 for the outfit as shown; £10.00 for the socks and shoes shown.
