This sweet looking girl is The Original Betsy Clark doll.
|She either has an orange stain on one cheek,or no blush on the other one.|
She was made in 1975.
She measures 14 inches tall.
Her head is vinyl,with rooted hair.
Her hands are vinyl too.
Her body is soft, stuffed cloth.
Her dress and apron are separate pieces and her clothes are removable.
|There was a similar looking doll that came in a blue dress. But this little girl is all in pink and white.|
Her shoes aren't.
|I'm not sure which way the ruffles on her hoes go,and it seems, neither are they.|
Betsy Clark was an artist known for her pastel pictures of sad, pointy headed children in patched clothes.
|This one in particular looks like today's doll.|
Betsy was thrown out of art school for not being able to follow the way she was 'supposed' to draw. Before being thrown out she worked briefly for Disney as part of her classes.
I have detailed some of Betsy's history in a previous post on a Betsy Clark doll. You can see that post HERE.
You can read the full history of Betsy HERE.
That's all for today. Tomorrow we'll see another doll.
