Continuing our showcasing of Black dolls for Black History Month, this 9 inch tall all-bisque doll is attributed to the German company of Simon and Halbig. She wears her original red and ecru striped knee length knit swimsuit with ecru ribbon straps, black knit socks and black leatherette slippers on her bare feet, and is marked "4//836" back of her head.
AUSTIN DOLL COLLECTORS SOCIETY
The Austin Doll Collectors Society is an organization of antique, vintage, and modern doll collectors, dealers, and artisans. We meet on the first Monday of each month and our meetings are fun and educational. We begin with refreshments and socializing, and, following our brief business meeting, there is a special doll-related program and "show and tell." The Austin Doll Collectors Society is a nonprofit organization and is a member of the United Federation of Doll Clubs.
