Lovely high-color Ideal 14” Toni P90 doll is wearing an original Ideal dress, undies, shoes, and socks. She has her original beautiful blonde wig, possibly in original style, and her face is in remarkable condition, considering she is pushing 70 years of age! She has single-stroke eyebrows, and full brush eyelashes. Her sleep eyes work well and they are clear. Her lip and cheek color are vivid . She does have a very light smudge on her right cheek, which you can see in the close-up photo. She has all of her fingers, and there is faint knee blush visible. Toni is wearing a dress I cannot find in any of my resources, but I am pretty certain it is an Ideal Toni dress because it has the right buttons, sewn-in slip and matching panties with the well-known loop trim. There is a royal blue satin ribbon woven through the openwork on the neckline that may be a later addition. All of her clothes are in good shape, with one very tiny light brown smudge on the left side of the dress skirt. She is wearing what I believe are her original pink canvas center snap shoes with cream silky socks. The sole on the right shoe has some damage which you can see in the photos. There is no unpleasant odor. The only issue I can find besides the minor ones already mentioned is she is loosely strung and if not now, she will need re-stringing in the not-too-distant future. That said, the last photo shows her standing completely on her own on a tabletop, so re-stringing is not an emergency. If you are wondering why I did not have it done, I know a lot of collectors can do their own re-stringing so I decided not to spend the money and keep the price more reasonable.
This lovely little doll will make a wonderful addition to a vintage doll collection!
A kind RubyLane shopper shared this information about this dress with me, so I will share it with you:
“ the dress is the 3rd edition of Ideal Dolls by Judith Izen!! It is displayed on page 86 on an Ideal Pre-Toni (c. 1949) doll. NO blue ribbon on the collar.”
Hope,this is helpful,to you!
