Bible Doll Company of America 1948-1960s
The Bible Doll Company of America was founded by Mrs. (Diana) Max L. Forman in Philadelphia, PA. The company history is unknown,
as is who manufactured the actual dolls, the doll characters produced were based on Biblical characters, shown on right is a vintage 1953 Miriam doll 11" tall, all hard plastic with sleep eyes, closed mouth, jointed
body, rooted hair. So few dolls have been found, of those there are no identifying doll marks on the dolls, instead a paper envelope or label was
originally included, describing the dolls character.
Miriam is dressed in Hebrew attire with a long orange dress and black and white striped headdress tied with a white cord
wearing sandals, she came with a plastic baby Moses doll in his bulrush basket with a blanket. The included envelope reads: Holy Land Earth
from the Mount of Olives and contains soil from the Mount of Olives inside.
Biblical characters were David, Esther, Joseph, Rebekah, Ruth and possibly others.
