This brightly dressed doll was made by the Duchess Doll Corporation. I believe she is part of the Miss America series and her purple sash shows she is representing the state of Arizona. She’s made of hard plastic and is dressed in her original costume of a royal purple and red skirt a gold trim and a yellow bodice. She has a yellow felt bonnet with purple ribbon adornments. She also has her original panties and “crinoline” like half slip, both stapled on. She has curly blonde hair, sleep eyes with large painted lashes and a sweet little painted mouth. She is stiff legged with painted shoes but her head and arms are jointed. She comes in an old Doll of All Nations cardboard box but the end of the box reads; Maid of Honor 7 ½” which she is not. The box has its inner liner and cellophane window. I believe she is from the late 1940’s or early 50’s.
She measures about 8” tall to the top of her hat and is in very good condition with minimally mussed hair and crisp, unsoiled clothes. Her eyes stay open most of the time and decide on their own when they are going to sleep or not. The box measures about 10 7/8” by 11 7/8” by 2 1/8” and is in fair condition with minor wear and light soiling. The cellophane has a tear and the inner liner that holds her in the box is also torn.
