This adorable pudgy bathing beauty is all ready for a day at the pleasure pier. Sweet vintage all bisque Kewpie-type doll stands 6-1/2 inches tall. She has strung jointed arms with the original stringing, and molded fingers and toes. Hand painted, with a sleek blond bobbed accented by a big blue glow, wide glue side-glancing eyes with painted lashes, pink cheeks and red lips. Wearing a chic 1920’s style tank bathing suit, striped hot pink and bright blue, with a brown belt complete with a little painted buckle. She even has a tiny belly button. Incised mark, "Made In Japan" with Nippon symbol on upper back. In very good condition -- no chips, cracks, breaks or repairs. One small mold flaw on the inside of the right ankle (see close up photo). Cute and sassy, display ready and extremely photogenic.
Beautiful dolls. Vintage patterns.
