Long before I was collecting fashion dolls,
I started collecting vintage dolls from the 50's and earlier.
I probably bought this doll at least 25 years ago.
Inside the shell I kept the receipt that I paid 25.00 for it.
I am almost positive, I got this item from an Antique Store.
When you open the lid of the paper peanut, you will find
a celluloid doll from either the 1920's or 30's. She is only
about 3 inches tall, but arms and legs move.
Celluloid is highly flammable. And fragile. My kids while I was in the
hospital took one of my celluloid dolls and put some heavier items on the arms.
Arm was not strong, now in many pieces. :( At least I am able to save the clothes
that was on the doll.
