Vintage 1950s Muffie Doll All Original! Muffie Ice Skater!
A very sweet 8" strung Muffie doll in an original ice skating costume circa 1955. The outfit is pictured on page 301 in "Encyclopedia of Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls Vol.2" by Pardee. The outfit is # 807 and it matches a costume for Debbie! A great HTF set!
The skating dress is a lime green flocked fabric trimmed with silver and pink rick rack. The dress closes in the back with a white snap. She wears her original pink satin panties trimmed with silver braid. A white bunny fur hat and muff, white rayon socks and white center snap ice skates complete her ensemble. The costume is good condition. The flocked fabric is still soft and pliable and only has some flocking missing on one fold of the skirt in the back. Hard to see so it displays beautifully! Often these 1950s flocked fabrics do not survive well but this dress has survived and is quite nice!!! A HTF outfit! See back view!
Muffie is all hard plastic, strung and has her original soft blonde mohair wig styled in braids. Her blue sleep eyes sparkle and her eye lashes are painted. The doll is in very good condition. The doll is marked "Story Book Dolls California" on her back.
A great example of a sweet Muffie Doll by the Nancy Ann Storybook Co. from that golden age of dolls!
