Advertising 21" Doll CHICKEN of the Sea MERMAID 1965 HTF orig Ralston Purina Display, TRIPOD, Tail - Video View More Images | About this Product | About Connectibles About this Item This listing features a VERY unusual doll, first one I've ever seen. 1965 "MERMAID" advertising doll for the Chicken of the Sea brand owned by Ralston Purina Company. Their mermaid is an icon of branding, and this doll must have been a terrific display! Display doll is 21" tall + a few extra inches with the tripod. Very PRETTY face, overall very good condition with some discoloration on the vinyl as shown in photos. Metal tripod runs all the way up to top of doll, and although it slides down, it seems to be hooked into the top & so I did not try to remove. Rooted blonde hair with some remnants of her original braids (may have been cut), sleep eyes. Jointed at the waist AND at the bottom of the tail (when's the last time you saw that in a doll listing!) Fun posing possibilities. Marked MERMAID DOLL COMPANY, 1965. Has her original heart necklace and one earring (showing a touch of green so new owner may wish to remove). Back of necklace chain is slid into the neck opening and we haven't tried to remove the head to release it. We've added replacement vintage DOLL LEI and floral headpiece, excellent condition. Not a doll you'll likely see again for a very long time. SURE to be a show-stopper for your displays and a TERRIFIC advertising collectible. Not mint, but with a bit of a clean-up she can be even more lovely! Take a look at the video to hear her TUNA jingle - it's a bit wobby, but much fun!
