Vintage, Susy Goose Barbie Vanity Table with Matching Bench and Rug
This old set of plastic doll furniture is for a Barbie doll. The dressing table is molded white plastic with gold accents. On the front of the vanity between the two operable drawers is “Barbie”. The vanity has delicate cabriole legs and an ornate faux mirror that is reflective but blurry. The are small compartments in the center of the table and attached to the table is a tissue box to hold Kleenex and a princess telephone. The vanity comes with a little framed picture of Barbie’s boyfriend Ken. I think is was probably attached to the table top at one time since there is a small tab that lines up with a tiny hole on the bottom of the picture frame. It seems the box for the vanity also stated it was also for Barbie’s best friend Midge but why would Midge have Ken’s picture on her dressing table? Maybe that’s why someone removed it and stowed in it the drawer. On the back of the mirror is the Susy Goose logo and the slogan “Toys That Mold Character”. It also has is the 1963 Mattel copyright.
The vanity measures about 7 ¾” across at the widest part of the legs by 3 1/3” deep at the same place. It measures about 5 7/8” to the top of the table and about 12 ½” in overall height. It is in very nice condition with minimal wear. It appears that some of the gold may be worn. The mirror is in good condition and there are no cracks in the plastic. There is a small stain on the top of the table which is shown in the photos and in the same photo you can see the small tab where the frame was probably attached.
The vanity also comes with the original bench seat which has a fuzzy red cushion that is adorned with an attached, applique flower. The bench has side rails and cabriole legs that match the vanity. The set also includes an oval throw rug that matches the seat of the bench.
The bench measures about 4 ¼” wide by 4” high by 2 ¾” deep. It is in very nice condition with minimal wear to the gold and no damage. The rug measures about 3 3/8” by 6 7/8” and is in very nice condition as well.
This is a vintage set from the 1960’s, not a reproduction. A few extras will be included, as shown in the photo) that another Barbie enjoyed having on her vanity.
