This next doll was given to me by my dear mother-in-law. She always went to garage sales and flea markets, and found the neatest stuff. I am not wild over this doll, but thought it was pretty funny. It is a Klumpe doll. Roldan and Klumpe dolls have a very specific and stylized look. They are made of cloth and felt, and were produced in Barcelona, Spain from the 1950s to early 1970s. Many of their dolls are tourist-oriented dolls of Flamenco dancers and Spanish ladies and men, but the companies also produced more unique and enchanting characters. She looks funny carrying her coat, poodle, hat box, and suitcase. From what I have read, they are pretty collectable now.
This little cutie I purchased at a thrift store. She was nice and clean and in good condition, so I picked her up for $2. Her eyes are a pretty shade of blue. They look like they are popping out in this picture. Pretty strawberry blonde hair, and a little piece of vintage millinary in her hair.
These are some vintage children's book's which I started to get hooked on from reading other blogs. lol! I thought the covers were just so sweet. I purchased these on e-bay. Unfortunately, there are no photos in them, which I was hoping for. One is from 1918, and the other from 1928.
I display them on my doll cabinet. Please stop over to Suzanne's to see the other participants, and their vintage treasures. Thanks for coming by!
