No Horse or any other props or doll are included and are only to show some fun display ideas and compare the sizes of the two dolls side by side. I had a hard time trying to get consistent color so it may vary some from what you see on your screen. This is for the G-30 (shorter shown with the 30 tag in photos where both are shown).
1961 Lori Martin Doll, the celebrity from the National Velvet TV Series Show personality Playpal sized dolls. Marked as Metro Goldwyn Mayer Inc. By Ideal Toy Corp 30 on back of neck and on doll backs Ideal Toy Corp G-30. Adorable looking and very hard to find doll with long dark brunette rooted hair, sleep eyes, jointed ankles (flex up and down and right and left), twist waist and dressed in jeans, plaid shirt and vinyl boots. Fun posing for photos as with the articulated joints in the waist and ankles (not knees) can bend and twist in many directions which makes them look so expressive and creating cute stances.
In good shape for age but do have a few expected minor cosmetic flaws like small scratches/marks/faint darker areas that could be deeper cleaned. Hair ribbon is not original. Beautiful sparkly blue sleep eyes that work well, full lashes and soft pink lips.
Strung a little loose, but depending on how you want to display either, this may not be a bad thing. Stand in many poses and in photos is free standing and not leaning on anything. You do have to balance her just right as there are so many poseable joints. Ankle joints are firm and hold pose very well.
Original boots (repaired) and shirt. Elastic waist band is loose fitting due to a tiny waist, so a few threads takes up the excess slack which is not really that visible under the shirt. Easy to put hands in the pockets and arms can stay up in the air by themselves fairly well if you play a little with posing and balance. No split or cracks to body but not flawless which I would not expect for being 58 years old. I quickly wiped both off with some water and soap, they may need a little deeper cleaning to remove a little more age discoloring fingerprints as they have just been in storage since I got them.Hair brushes easily, but looks a tiny bit frizzy in some places, especially the ends. Hair did have some conditioner applied.
Few small spots on her left cheek where some blush is missing. Looks like light colored freckles. The right cheek is not as pink as the left. I do not know if she originally came that way or why it is fainter. Arms are a slightly different color than the rest of her body.The underside sole of boots at the toes was broken off. A small replacement plastic piece had been applied to each bottom and edges tacked down. Coated with some black to help hide repairs. Really is not that noticeable when she stands unless you are looking close as the black shiny helps hide this. By no means is the repair a pretty one however. You can always put another pair of cowboy boots on, but I liked the originals. Looking from underside of sole it is very ugly, but when she stands, isn't nearly as bad. Jeans are not original to doll and fit loose. Will be Insured with Signature Confirmation and keep in mind will be a large box. Parcel can be very slow and can take 1-2 weeks to reach you from here in NY, so you may want to upgrade to Priority instead if you are in a rush. Costs depend on weight, box size and how far she has to travel, I have no control over what the post office charges.
This will be a really large box. You will have to look long and hard to find another like this cutie! Some new, some old, some huge and some small. None were bought directly from a store, so I don't really know the previous history and if they may contain smells, stains or signs of wear. Some I bought with the intention as using for photo props and then never did, some I bought just because I liked them.
We are doing some major remodeling here, so as time permits over the next few months I will be listing a lot of antiques, dolls, collectibles and paintings that there just isn't enough space for here, so please keep checking back to see if there is something you just can't live without!
