Doll Rescue - Uneeda High Heel Fashion Doll (1958 - 60)

I love vintage dolls.


Madame Alexander's Cissy is one of my favorites. Many companies tried to create their own "Cissy": Ideal's Miss Revlon, there was also "Toni" and "Candy". 


I found this Uneeda 2S marked doll.


She had a dirty face and unkempt hair. 
 

“UNEEDA/2S” on the back of her head.


Obviously she has been re-wigged, these dolls always have rooted short hair. Her nails are unpainted. Sadly she was sold without clothes, which is disappointing because some of the vintage fashions are so pretty. 



Luckily the re-sale shop had a basket full of clothes, mostly baby doll styles, but i found this red dress (which was probably hers, but got removed.)

 
Wards catalog


The earlier versions had 16 points of articulation! Jointed at the wrists, elbows, biceps, shoulders, waist, hips, knees, and ankles. 

Uneeda used the same head mold, marked "Uneeda 2s", on their non-articulated, 18" fashion dolls as well. A number of hair colors and styles and face paint that were not available on the 20" Dollikin body can be found on the fashion dolls bearing the same head molds. It is not known what years or for how long these straight-legged, hard plastic fashion dolls were produced. - wikipedia

 1958-1960s Uneeda High Heel Fashion doll, 20" hard plastic jointed (six joints) body at the neck, shoulder, waist and hips, vinyl head with rooted hair in various colors and styles, sleep eyes, real eyelashes, painted bow mouth, high heel feet, dressed in various outfits from the current era, brides, day wear, casual and formal gowns.  Same head mold as Dollikin, marked Uneeda 2S.



Now...to scour ebay for vintage clothes and shoes. *sigh*
