An old posable doll toy.I found this doll at a thrift shop. It has a red rose on it's rear and the numbers 4984 on his back. Anyone see one before?

I'm sorry, but I am unfamiliar with any brand that uses a rose on the bottom of a doll.
It's possible someone placed the rose there for their own reasons and is not a brand mark.

I can only suggest you contact several of the doll forums, as these members have a lot of knowledge about antique/vintage dolls.
You will need to add a few items to the description before asking for their help.


Composition - very important.
Your doll is a boy doll, so this may narrow the search for them, as not all companies made boy dolls.
It would be best to contact several sites just in case one site does not recognize your doll.
You will have to join the groups before you can post, but all are free to join. Some may ask for donations but you can ignore that.

I purchased this "doll" on eBay and it is marked on the bottom "Sharon Kaminisy 91" I don't know if this is the maker. I found another doll maker "Debbie Garlem" on the Bittersweet Pastimes site and I thought this doll looked a little like her work, any thoughts.

I have this black baby doll that is I believe is made of composition, but I'm not positive. The arms and legs are held together with rubber bands. The hair, eyes, red fingernails, and facial features are all painted. The diaper/underwear is hand-sewn.


There are no markings anywhere that I can find. Can anyone help me in identifying the year, and possibly the maker and any other information about him. I am interested in selling him and would like to know where the best avenue would be to sell him.
