Very pretty vintage little celluloid doll.  She stands only 7.5cm tall and is very sweet.  She is wearing her much loved bestest polka dot dress beneath her pinny but alas she seems to have had a lot of fun over the years and her frock shows its age.  She has jointed limbs. Obviously well loved over the years, the doll is still in good condition for age and retains her charm.  Unable to detect fully the trademark but can just see "Germany" stamped on her back.  Please note that this doll is unsuitable for use as a toy and should only be used for decorative purposes and not given to a child to play with.

Poor Old Mr McDuffie, or Monty to his neareast and dearest, he's a bit of an elderly stateman in the cuddly toy department.  Having seen better days, Monty expresses a wish for a new home and some gentle TLC would not go amiss too.  Clearly loved and cherished over the years, his age is starting to show.  Born in the 1940s or 1950s this little Scottie has patches of baldness and his legs are not what they used to be either.  A little on the squished side, so a gentle stroll rather than a sprightly walkies is in order for him.  His mohair coat is fine in places and there are patches where a comb over would not go amiss (ie he is bald - please see pics),  There is no clue to his lineage, although a  tiny scrap of fabric label remains (he does look like a Chiltern though). What he lacks in youth and fur he makes up for in charm and character - he really is a darling.
