Since I neglected to have girls, I’m 100% sure she predates our moving in.
I’d like to know who she is before adding her to the display of artifacts we’ve found on the property (a china dollhouse bride that Pete the Magnificent’s mom identified as being from the 1920s, a plastic arm that my sons think might have come from an old Batman toy, assorted marbles).
From her hairstyle, I’m guessing she’s from the late Sixties to mid Seventies. Does anybody recognize her?
Update: I’ve been online comparing her with with fashion dolls of the Sixties and Seventies, and she looks a lot like a Francie doll… but without the “real” eyelashes. She also seems smaller in scale; her head is about the height of a quarter and I can’t imagine it on an 11-inch doll. My latest theory is that she’s a dime-store knockoff.
