we have a RARE early Vogue Strung Ginny from 1952-53. Marked simply "Vogue Doll" on her back and "Vogue" on her head, this strung Ginny is in lovely condition . She is tightly strung, has all her tiny fingers, has no chips, cracks, seam splits, or odors, and can stand on her own and hold all poses. Her body is evenly toned and shows no fading or stains. An exquisite blue-eyed "carrot top"; her gorgeous two-toned eyes ( prefer to stay in the open position) are defined with charcoal-brown brows and eyelashes which are clearly visible and much sought after. Her highly-blushed cheeks have no rubs and her coloring is overall even, soft and appealing. Her original carrot red wig is styled in the classic flip with thick bangs. It is clean, shiny, thick, and in the original curly set. She is in excellent condition, and may have been gently played with at some time. T have been no repaints or touch ups to this doll!

Ginny is dressed in a Kindergarten School Series early 1953 "Dawn" #30 (tagged with a crisp tag that reads "Original Vogue Dolls Inc." from 1953) pale pink cotton pinafore dress with a decorative band depicting teddy bears, balls and blocks. This hard to find dress has butterfly sleeves and retains the original hook and eye closure at the back, which has rusted and stained the back of the dress ( please see second photo). The dress is in otherwise excellent condition never having been laundered or ironed, and if played with, was gently handled. Ginny wears pink "fat" bloomers with perfect elastic, pink socks and vintage-type, hand-made pink center-snap shoes. I have added a new pink satin bow to her glorious hair. I will gladly gift wrap her at no extra charge.

You may view an almost identical Ginny and verify this outfit on page 115 of the second edition of Izen and Stover's Collector's Encyclopedia of Vogue Dolls ( purple cover).

Please feel free to ask questions if I left something important out, and I will do my best to answer. I want my customers to be delighted with each purchase. I have many more photos of her and will gladly send them to you if you furnish me your email address. Thank you for looking!
