Can anyone give me any information about this doll? So far I have not found any like it on some of the usual doll sites. Thank you!
Pattie from Maine
Need more information, what is face made of? What is body made of? I have a couple that look similar but is hard to tell from photo. The face [lip shape, eye lashes] looks of a german origin. Did you check the Kovels Antique site, alot of info there.
When I see 'em - normally looking for other dolls ! - they're usually referred to as 'mask face' dolls. There's usually hair (often yarn hair) or a scarf covering the edge of the plastic 'mask', and the whole rest of the body is usually soft stuffed cotton.
Never seen one with wiggle/googly eyes before, though. This isn't much help, but may help you narrow the search !
It looks like a doll I had when I was little. Her bodice said, "Little Red Riding Hood". She had a hood on her head -- no hair underneath, just some stands curling around her face. She also had a cape. If that is the same doll she's been around at least since 1953 because that's when I had her. Thanks for posting, this brought back such memories!
Her eyes and lips look like Betty Boop who was originally created in the 1930's ... Not saying she's a Betty Boop doll but maybe this info will be of help ...
What about a kuopie doll? at least the eyes
It's one scary doll, that's for sure!
Like another poster, I had one like this, too--around 1955, 1956. Soft body, plastic ( or very hard rubber?) face. Think it was a Little Red Riding Hood, as well.
Hello PupperMom, I didn't know what you meant by "poster". Can you detail your answer a bit more? Thanks so much!
A poster is someone who posts a question or comment or tip. Example, you just posted the question about what a poster is so you're a poster :-)
I had a doll similar to this one when I was small)about 100 years ago,lol.) The body part of mine wes plain red, with blue trim. The fabric must have been a thinner version of the polar fleece we have today, because as the doll got older, I can remember the fabric feeling kind of nubby. There were a few blonde curls made out of yarn sticking out along the edge of the cap, mainly on top. I don't know what the doll was actually called.
