Ken collects advertising things, which includes a few dolls and a load of stuffed toys.You may have seen my post on our KLM Airlines doll HERE. When I spotted this girl in the Connie sale,I thought of Ken.
I could tell she was an airline doll,but I didn't know which airline.
When I researched I found out that she's a British Airways 'Air Stewardess' doll.(That's what they were called back when this doll came out.)
That makes her even better for Ken's collection, since he's a Brit away from home. That's what gave me the idea to use Ken's hometown,Hull, as her background.
|This is the Humber Dock Basin,in Hull.|
She was made by Rexard.
|Queen Victoria Square,with the Hull City Hall and Maritime Museum.|
|The bottom of the Queen Victoria statue in Queen Victoria Square.|
She should also have had a hat with a badge on the front.This one is missing hers.
Her clothes are all removable, except her tights and shoes,which are painted on.
I'm not sure what year she was made. I think it was about 1980, but look at that eye makeup.
I'm not sure that looks like 1980.
|And there's Queen Victoria.|
Her haircut looks more 70's. (She has short hair, but believe me,it has a mind of it's own.)
She's a small doll,even smaller than thew 9 inch KLM Airlines doll, standing only 7 1/2" tall.
That's it for today. Let's look at Hull again before we go.
Tomorrow we'll see another doll.
