Dream World Carmen Miranda doll 11" tall, is unmarked,
had a hang tag that identified the dolls name and will probably have staple
marks on the dolls back from the attached clothing.
World dolls were manufactured in the USA from the late
to the early 1950s. Dolls are all composition, 11"
tall, with jointed bodies; neck, shoulders and hips, have a glued on mohair wig, painted side
glancing blue eyes with painted upper lashes and a red painted
closed mouth and are unmarked.
Dolls have their clothing stapled to the body, came in elaborate
formals, dressed in International costumes, as a personality or even
dressed for an occupation. Thousands of these inexpensive dolls were sold to decorate a bedroom
shelf and many dolls are found today in all original clothing, as it is
Junel Novelty Company made similar 11" dolls with side
glancing painted eyes, dolls also are unmarked, clothing is not stapled
bodies and Madame
Alexander made side glancing painted eye 11" Wendy Ann dolls, which are marked with their name
and do not have staple marks on the dolls body.
