This auction is for a vintage blue straw doll hat and doll coat that would fit a doll about 18" tall. The hat is old- I'm guessing from around the 1930's but I'm not sure. It has vintage pink and blue millinery flowers attached. It also has an old blue crossgrain ribbon that is in very fragile condition. The hat reminds me of something that McGuffey Ana would wear. It is about 7" across from brim to brim with the middle circumference of about a little more than 7" also. It would look nice on a composition or bisque doll between 14-18" tall. I don't see any breaks in the straw. It also comes with an old coat that I believe to be homemade but nicely sewn. This coat was probably made in the 40's or 50's and feels like it's made of some sort of rayon taffeta. It is cream colored with grey lining. T is a remnant of fur trim at the collar. It has two snaps. It measures about 5 inches across the shoulders and about 9" long. Sleeves are about 4 1/2 " in length. My guess is that it would fit a doll about 18" tall like the slim waist dolls- such as Madame Alexander's Margaret, Wendy, or Arranbee's Nancy Lee etc. T is a little surface dirt and it could probably use a cleaning but it has no bad odors. No holes or tears. Please ask me questions prior to bidding. This is a final sale. Please see my other listings as I will be listing some dolls ... read more
