Item/Description: Vintage ca 1930s-1960s fully poseable court jester clown bed doll/boudoir doll.
This delightful exceptionally tall (23 1/2") bed doll/boudoir doll (also referred to as a sofa doll/salon doll) is colorfully attired in its original vibrant lemon yellow sewn-on, one-piece satin-like jumpsuit and stuffed hat ensemble with a white lace collar with yellow flowers, complementary white lace trim accents on its hat, tulle netting around its wrists and ankles, white ribbon bows around its neck and on its hat, and puffy white pom-poms adorning its ankles and the tippy-top most part of its hat.
The adorable angelic painted plastic (? celluloid) pixie face of this bedroom charmer just exudes sweetness, from its vibrantly blushing rosy hued cheeks, to its ruby red closed pursed lips, to its teeny-tiny upturned nose, to its painted eyebrows and eyes whose oh-so-flirty lashes beckon you to make her/him yours, while oh-so-sweetly framing this cherubic cutie’s perfectly precious face are “peek-a-boo” wisps of chestnut brown hair bangs.
The cloth-covered wire armature interior of this darling doll enables it to be fully poseable and displayable, while at the same time remaining heartwarmingly huggable thanks to its thickly padded stuffed cloth body and stitched felt material feet and mitten hands.
She/he will decoratively enhance any vintage or shabby chic bedroom or doll room decor with her/his nostalgically retro presence! And what a happier place any child’s nursery or bedroom will be with this doll cheerfully displayed therein.

Condition Summary: This cutely kitschy harlequin bed doll remains in very good vintage collectible condition, retaining strong vivid facial coloration; exhibiting no cracks to the plastic face; no color fading, rips or tears to any portions of the clothing or exposed felt cloth material that comprises its hands and feet; and no odors. The white pom-pom balls and exposed felt body parts evince a not-unusual modicum of surface soiling, and there are a handful of “pulls” and “puckers” on the one-piece satin outfit, though nothing of any significance or that in any way diminishes from its overall aesthetic appeal or decorative displayability.
Excerpted Online Research Information about Boudoir Dolls (attributed to collectdolls.about.com/od/dollprofiles/p/boudoirdolls.htm): “Boudoir Dolls - Years of Production: Although dolls that sit on beds are still being made today, the classic vintage Boudoir Dolls were made from approximately the 1920s through the 1940s. Some of the earliest dolls, made even earlier than 1920 in some cases, were made in France. Many of the dolls were made in an art deco style.
Sizes of Boudoir Dolls: These are generally large dolls, made to sit on their owner's bed. You can find dolls as small as 20 to 24 inches, although the vast majority of the dolls are over 26 inches in size. Boudoir dolls in the larger sizes seem to be in favor with collectors...
More About Boudoir Dolls: Unlike most dolls from the mid 20th century, which were made for children, boudoir dolls were made to grace the beds of grown ladies. The dolls today are sought after because of their classic artistic styling and, often, their art deco look. Many boudoir dolls can be found by collectors in the $50 to $200 range, although desirable examples can bring several hundred or thousand dollars (such as rare Cubeb smokers or rare Lencis).”
