Here are two 1955 Godey’s Little Lady dolls in their original clothes. They are 7 in. with china head and limbs and cloth bodies. Their clothes reflect the style of Godey’s Ladies Books, pattern guides for ladies of the late 1800’s. Their creator was Ruth Gibbs.
When mother bought me a Madame Alexander Little Genius cloth and composition baby doll I had a feeling that, at age 12, I was getting too old to play with dolls. So she was never played with and remains in perfect shape.
