Out of the land of 1950's
Fashion Dolls, comes the exquisite 14R doll. Although, the 14R is probably just a mold marking, her distinctive face and her
fashions, were a fashion statement in the 1950's and early 1960's doll world.
It was thought to be a
less expensive version of the highly touted Ideal "Revlon" doll, and pointing to the R on the back of the neck, but it
is most likely just a sku marking for the persons making the mold for the company that ordered them.
These dolls can be found
distributed by Royal, Roberta Doll Co, Natural Doll Co., and many other companies.
The doll body itself,
can have either jointed arms and legs, or
may be just the stuffed body
version which is filled with kapoc.
The 14R refers to the
head, not the body type, which is recognized by the flatter flace, with a square jaw, and deepset eyes.
The hair is not always the
highest quality, although I do have one, that I swear is "Revlon" hair, and there is a great variety of lengths
and colors of hair.
