Click image for detail
Fabulous vintage Virga Playmate Walking Doll with a gorgeous, tosca mohair flip. Her clothes are crisp and clean and the box is correctly marked P-822 DINNER/198. A catalog picture of this doll and outfit can be found on p. 207 of Small Dolls of the 40s and 50s by Carol J. Stover. This cute Virga wears a bright fuchsia pink nylon dress with gold and cream bodice, and gold trim at the hem (the back of the skirt has slight color fading on the left side due to laying flat - see picture), white panties, white nylon socks and white bow shoes. On her head is a small horsehair hat with tiny vintage flowers (unattached). She has a beautiful face with bright blue eyes and molded lashes that open and close freely. Her walker works (though loose) and there are no cracks or bite marks. A darling vintage doll in excellent condition just waiting for a new home!
 
Note: Box comes with original wire doll holder to hold the doll securely inside. The lid has some moderate damage; a name written on the top corner and what looks to be a pencil hole mark, plus a few other scuffs.
