Many dolls manufactured in the 1950's and 60's were made to compete with Vogue's 8" Ginny Doll. The A&H Doll Corporation's 8" GIGI Doll was one of those dolls in the competitive market. Gigi has no identifiable marks. Some resources say she had molded toes while other resources insist that she did not, This doll does not have toe indentions. She was identified as Gigi by her previous owner and does have Gigi's characteristics.
The vintage 8" doll is a walker made of light weight hard plastic. Her arms and legs move and hold their position. When she is walked, her head turns side to side. Her sleep eyes need assistance to open and close but they will do so without difficulty. Her eyes are bright and clear! Her hair is a little mussed but still retains a flip style. Her "skin tone" on her torso is a bit uneven with a few small areas where something blue has lightly faded on her (see photos). Her facial coloring is excellent with lovely rosy cheeks and pretty red lips.
She is dressed in a newer, untagged, frilly dress. The pretty white long waisted dress has an attached crinoline petticoat. The dress is untagged. The closure in the back is a Velcro type of closure and though Velcro has been around since the late 1950's it wasn't widely used until the 1960's and 70's. The dress is likely newer than the doll but fits her nicely.
She displays beautifully!
