1920's Dollhouse doll



   
  Hi, I'm back. I just had to share this 1920's dollhouse doll.


 Look at the female doll's incredible straw hat. I am afraid she looks like an Edith, but I really don't care for that name. Especially after they gave it to the dowdy sister on Downton Abbey. 


They are standing in a Tynie toy garden arch. 


I had previously named the male doll ungraciously Hubert, but it sound rather like a fellow from a Nabakov novel so now wish to rechristen him Winston.


Don't you LOVE her purple dress? Love the Olive green hose.


I think they are discussing visiting that hotel featured on Susan's mini homes (you can find in my blogs I follow next column).
But after visiting the Hackers in Germany their budget may not stretch, you know how that goes...
Cheers, CM

Hello Cm,
She is a great doll...she reminds me of Hyacinth from Keeping up appearances.
Big hug,
Giac

I love this doll. I'm so glad you got her. How perfect is she for the Tynietoy house? I'm not crazy about the name Edith either. Maybe Daisy - like in the Great Gatsby. Although I do like Giac's idea - Hyacinth. Winston is a good name for the other doll. He looks like a Winston.

Hmmm good point Giac and Hyacinth IS a good name.

Hey Susan, How much do they charge at that hotel you blogged about?

Hi CM! I think Winston looks very Edwardian and I agree that Hyacinth is a lovely name for the lady! I love it when period fashions stay "frozen" in time... she really looks like the Twenties! Are they porcelain?

My Realitty said...

Hi Daydreamer, The heads, arms and lower legs are porcelain and the bodies stuffed cloth. I agree Hyacinth is from the 20's and Winston is older looking more appropriate for the Christian Hacker house due to his side whiskers but they both look so unique and are my newest I just wanted to use them. xo CM

OH dear, I see what you mean she does sort of look like an edith, but Hyacinth seems nicer, and Winston is definitely a better name! Edith/Hyacinth is quite a lovely 20's doll, love the outfit.

sugar, spice and whatever's nice

Gorgeous dress! what a terrific find. He is clearly older than she is, with his grey hair, so it seems fitting that he sports an older style of whiskers!

Hi Teresa, nice thoughts! CM
