The Royal Toy Manufacturing Company was
by Morris Bonet in 1914, the company was then bought by Henry and
Rose Frankel, Rose did the designing. Royal dolls in this era are
usually marked on the dolls head: Royal Toy or Royal Doll.
the company merged with the Jolly Toy Company, so some dolls from this
era may have the Jolly Toy mark as well Royal.
In 1977 Miss Elsa Raiji bought the company, she was a designer at the company
since 1951, excellent doll costumes are a hallmark of her talents.
